Birthday Balloons

I am enjoying an afternoon in my craft room, while my youngest is in here "borrowing" my TV. His brother is playing a video game with friends on the other. Which is fine by me it's forcing my to focus on the craft table and not the screen with YouTube videos. ;-) I was catching up with reading some blogs when I got inspired to make my card.

I started by stamping the balloons, then added some color for the clouds in sky to following along with a sketch. I added the sentiment, hand drew the strings and trimmed down the panel. Before popping the panel on the base with foam tape, I added a little bit of black and white washi to one side. 

I will be linking the card up to the following blogs:

  2. Love this Monica! Just found your blog via the challenge :)

  3. I really love how this card turned out! The way you did the sky is nothing short of genius! I really like the way you drizzled that blue down next to the balloons themselves. And you are a master balloon-string-drawer! This was such a treat to see and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
