MFTWSC238 - May Your Wishes Come True

Another cute sketch over at MFT card challenge with MFTWSC238 and one more birthday card with a little sparkle and shine for the Simon Says Stamp Wendesday Challenge.
Here is my card:
Here I started off with using Grout Gray cardstock as my base using Blueprint 20 for the stitched rectangle. Next, I die-cut a cross stitched rectangle using white card stock and used Summer Splash cardstock to use as a mat behind it.

To add the look of grass, I first, die-cut a white piece of cardstock using the Grassy Fields die and placed took the negative piece and placed over the area where I wanted the grass. From there I sponged in the color creating the look of grass.
Created the ballons by die-cutting Birthday Balloons along with Birthday Wishes Balloons as they are a perfect to use together if you want a mat look. Colors are Daffodil, Ripe Raspberry, and Lavender Fields. Kraft cardstock for the strings. To add some details, I used the white sharpie pen and added chevron, dots, and crosses on the balloons.

For the bears, present, and sentiment, I used the stamp set called: Birthday Bears and colored them using my copic markers. Last but not least, I added some clear sequins and Wink of Stella over the present to add a little sparkle and shine.
