Papertrey MIM#250

Hello! I have a birthday card for my oldest brother using the MASKED BACKGROUND technique shared by Laurie Williams for MAKE IT MONDAY #250.
Once again I stuck to the advice of my youngest son for color choices...BLUES:))  PTI Spring Rain and Blueberry Sky were used for the BG.  I did throw a stencil on after the first inking to add more interest.
Here it is:
I used the negative space of the balloon die cut from Birthday Style die set and colored them in with Fiber Castell PITT Big brush pens and a few Smaller ones from the same company. The sentiment is from HOORAY!! I do like the brush lettered look of HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Thanks for stopping by!
