Wonderful card! Really, really fun and happy. Love it. And I'm so sorry for the migraines. I just finished a six day run, so can totally relate. Prayers for you that they don't return. Bev

Love it!! Glad to hear you're feeling better. I've been down with this really bad virus and it's kicking my butt. I don't even feel like crafting..and that's bad.

Hey there. I saw this in the Muse gallery, and wondered how you snuck this baby by me! Anyway, it is super cute, and got my vote. Those three little stars balance out those big balloons so perfectly well. Love that paper--is it new for our class?
