Birthday wishes

I have been busy topping up my emergency stack of cards and I have made this birthday card - I am trying to make cards that are suited for both male and female and I think rather than try to make a card that could be either / or I really should just either make a male card or a female card. Actually I think I might challenge myself to make more male cards - I struggle with those and always end up slipping in a flower or bow somewhere!
Anyway here is a close up of the card -

and here is a full view of the card

I have made this card for the following blogs - thanks for the inspiration from these wonderful blogs:
Cardabilities sketch 27
Kaboodle Doodle - challenge #58 make a birthday card
Simon Says - birthday card
Cupcake Craft - challenge #133 up in the air with optional green
I have used Cosmo Cricket papers from the Pixie Licious collection, the hot air balloon stamp is from Verve Up Up & Away.
Thanks for looking!
