I am a noob in XNA. I want to create an effect which shows a balloon bursting?

Any pointers would be highly appreciated.

2D or 3D? What did you try so far? – ashes999 Mar 4 '13 at 4:44
2D. I have no idea how to start. Need a kick to shatter my mindblock. I come from a Windows/Web background. – Rahul Soni Mar 4 '13 at 5:12

Just have a one-frame image showing a bursting balloon. It doesn't even have to be great quality. See this example:

Animators can get away with a lot when it's something that appears very briefly. You'd be surprised how well this works.
