Let's Celebrate!

Today is the last day for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #370. This is a weekly challenge that begins on Mondays. I love using flowers on cards but have been trying to use other elements just for a change.

Onto a white card base, I added a panel of blue cardstock and then a die-cut panel of patterned paper sliced in keeping with the sketch. I liked the little butterflies fluttering about, using a white gel pen to emphasize their paths. I die cut the balloons from white cardstock and then sponged them for color, adding Wink of Stella for a little shine. The balloons were added with foam tape and the strings were hand-cut and glued directly to the card. Some tiny iridescent gems were added for sparkle. The sentiment was stamped, die-cut and matted then added with foam tape. The inside was decorated with additional balloons and hand-drawn strings.
