Dragon Balloon Birthday - Pilin' on the Tic-Tac-Toe

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Tic-Tac-Toe. We're sponsored by Eureka Stamps.

I used the first column from our PIO Tic-Tac-Toe board: Balloon, baker's Twine, Stripes.

This accordion card was inspired by a tutorial from Me & My Big Ideas; I made a matching birthday card for his brother this year.

Although this features bold designs, I wanted to feature the Dragon Balloon from Eureka Stamps' unique line of shaped balloon images.

The balloons are from an Elizabeth Draft die set, and the vehicles are from Taylored Expressions' "Transportation Little Bits" set. The sentiment stamp is from Jillibean Soup, and I heat-embossed it in neon yellow.
