My card was made with a balloon stamp from Inkadinkado (Patterned Balloons) and Papertrey Ink letter dies.  The baker's twine is Doodlebug.  I stamped with Stazon black on Bazzill swiss dotted paper and hand cut out the balloons.  I die cut the letters for "HAPPY"  layered them with thin chipboard and then gave the letters 2 coats of Glossy Accents...just wanted to show you a letter without and what the finished letters looked like close up:
I think that Glossy Accenting the letters give them a really cool look!!  
Thanks for checking in with me...hope to see you in the challenge:)!!!  Hugs!! Lisa
