MIM second card for debossing a stamped image

My granddaughter has a birthday in July, and I decided to get a jump start on her card.
I tried the technique over at Nichole's blog Capture the Moment
This is my second card for this technique.
I used my friends stamp Balloon Bash and also a Heart to Heart # 2 to get my 7 balloons
because she will be 7 in July.
Again, after stamping I laid the dies down with the brown mat under them,
so it did not cut the paper, just debossed.
The sentiment is from Keep It Simple:  Birthday!

Okay, off to try out more stamps and coloring!
