Belated Birthday Card

Sharing a belated birthday card I made for my brother-in-law.
I was a week late, so I thought a special belated theme cards was in order.

I started with the sentiment and snail for a CAS look. 
Then saw the Lawnscaping photo inspiration and thought I'd have
Mr. Snail carry BALLOONS and then added the hill for a belated feel.

The background was created with distress inks. 

Stamps: "Harold's ABCs" and "Critters in the Burbs" by Lawn Fawn
Papers: LF "The Bright Side" and BG "Olivia", Bazzill cardstock
Inks: Memento black, Distress in Faded Jeans, Broken China, and Peeled Paint
Other" balloon punch, Fiskars grass punch, MM wire, Hemptique string, Prismacolor pencils

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking,
