a float away happy birthday!

good morning! it's friday!! yahoo!!
today i have a card to share and it's also on the newton's nook blog! :)

have you played along with the inky paws challenge yet this month? it's a sketch, and it's awesome!!
you can use it in so many different ways!! 

i decided to play along again, and here it the card i came up with:

love it! ha ha!!
i used some vellum to emphasize the diaganol, while also being subtle. you know i can't stop using vellum. seriously...(i made a different card last night with a goal to not use any vellum! i was difficult! i kept reaching for that vellum sheet!)

i paper pieced newton and popped him up for dimension. i mean...he's hangning onto a balloon...he has to be popped up! lol! the newton image is one of my all time FAVORITE newton's and it's from the newton's birthday bash set! 

can you tell i added wink of stella and glossy accents to the balloon? i really wanted it to be whimsical! 
i spelled out the rest of 'happy' with some thickers and added the 'birthday' onto the vellum with some stazon ink! 

so that's it! it's your turn to get your paws inky and play along!!! 
i can't wait to see what you make! :)
