I have cut her out using an unbranded die, and mounted her onto a piece of paper from the Sweet Sorbet paper pack, and added a border of Blue linen card stock and then mounted onto Melon Mambo card stock. I have punched out balloons and added linen thread for strings and then the Happy Birthday sentiment was cut twice glued together to pop it up a bit.
