No stamping Happy Birthday

Morning all.
Just a quick card today and a rather appropriate one.

Today is my birthday and we should have been out and about but the weather and a broken tooth put paid to that and our meal out is in the balance as eating is not easy.
Anyway I rang the dentist first thing and after  explaining that the Monday afternoon appointment was too far off, they said they would ring back later.
So while I waited I played in the craft room making this CAS card without any stamping, MFT small letters and pierced rectangle. Marianne balloon and part of a Happy Birthday die from The Range, possibly X-Cut. 
CASology are celebrating their 5th birthday so I decided to use their cue word BALLOON and LIM's no stamp challenge together with AAA's rainbow challenge for my inspiration. The balloons were coloured with Copics after the letters were die cut and I added some strings with a black fine liner.

I'm back from the dentist now with a temporary filling and an appointment for Monday with a locum dentist, as ours has sadly broken her ankle! Hopefully it will stop the ouch when drinking until they can sort it out. Think I will leave the celebratory meal until the temporary filling is a bit more settled.
