PTI Balloon Bash Coverplate Birthday Cards

I recently got an order for some birthday cards and decided to use primary colors and a balloon motif for this set of cards. I used an A2 card base and die cut Papertrey Ink's Balloon Bash Coverplate die in several colors with a different color mat behind the coverplate die cut. Then I used various balloon cut files on my Silhouette for the different balloons I added to the coverplate. Next, I stamped a sentiment from Little Blue Button Stamps "Happy Birthday, Charlie" clear stamp set that I won from their blog hop last month. Thanks, Olga!
For the inside, I used a Gerda Steiner digi stamp paired with a sentiment I found in my Silhouette library. If anyone knows the source of the sentiment, please let me know so I can give credit to the creator. I'm very careful now to save everything I download with the author's name, but before I started my blog I didn't always do that.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
