Celebrate, Laugh, Love




Good Wednesday Morning Peeps! Hope your week is going well so far!

Today's card is made with this sketch on Mercy Kerin's blog. Another sketch I printed out and actually made a card with! Yeah me!!

I started with a base of real red followed by a layer of whisper white and then a layer of real red DS paper from the level 1 hostess pack from the current cattie. The balloons are from the SU set Crazy for Cupcakes. I stamped on watercolor paper and colored them in with markers and blended with my aqua painter. The sentiments on this card are from the SU "Everday Flexiable Phrases" Set and was stamped individually in real red ink. I punched the circle out with my 1" circle punch and layered it onto another real red circle that was punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch. I added some real red striped ribbon and some mini white brads. The balloon colors are real red, pretty in pink and pixie pink. I covered the balloons with some crystal effects, to make them shiny. It doesn't show in the picture, but is really adds a nice touch to the card.

Well, that's it for today, Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!
