Balloon animal birthday cards for men

These two birthday cards for men feature the Puppy Balloon digi stamp from the Birthday Set by Tracey Malnofski at Stamping Boutique. I colored the digi stamps with Prismacolor pencils and decorated them with glitter. The sketch is from Challenge #151 by Natalie at A Spoon Full of Sugar.
