CASEing a Birthday Card

Well, I started off thinking I would make my dad's birthday card but I think this turned out a little feminine for him.  I may try it again with different colors.  Here's the inspiration card and here is my card:

Yeah, kind of a near miss.  I could have added more balloons, or used a different birthday sentiment- this one was the boldest one I could find in my stash.  I am trying to use up all my Paper Studio white heavy weight card stock, but boy is it taking me a little while.  I still have half a stack left.  Why in such a hurry?  Because SU! inks and papers work better together.  See the pink balloon?  Looks like it's been shot.  That's because the ink kind of puddled on the white card stock.  Doesn't do that on SU card stock.

I've been searching eBay for the stamp set- Happy Birthday Everyone- and I can find it but I can't get eBay to work for me.  I hit bid, buy it now, add to cart... and I get nowhere.  Something is wrong, probably operator error.  I'll try again later.

Ah well.

Supplies used:

Verve Happy Birthday stamp
The Paper Studio white heavy weight card stock
SU! inks: Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride, Pool Party and So Saffron
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
SU! Balloon Celebration stamp set
SU! Pool Party card stock
scrap of silver shimmer paper

Thanks for looking!
