Whimsy And Stars ~ Balloons


Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a good weekend. We had some terrific thunderstorms last night. The kind of lightning that is so bright it almost hurts your eyes. But we got lots of rain which we desperately needed.So its all good.
So today I am showing you my second card as GD for Whimsy and Stars. This is a new release that just came out last week. Its called "Balloon Baby" and you can buy it here. I love coloring balloons so this one was a lot of fun for me.

OK so my recipe!

Papers: K& Co.
Corner Die: Sizzex
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps
Colors: Prismacolor Pencils on Kraft Cardstock
Card Candy: gift from Annika (love this stuff!)


A few challenges this card qualifies for:
Crafty Pad -  - Bold and Bright or soft pastels
Pile It On - Going Round In Circles 
Our Creative Corner -  Your Style

THanks for stopping by!

So pretty, your stitching is amazing, such detail and lined up just right. I can't draw or sew a straight line so this would leave me out. :) Lori m

After cooking "tons" of apricots for a kind of jam, I have a tiny little bit of power left to tell you how sweet your card is! An that I admire your talent of coloring so perfectly - the ballons are so perfectly colored!
