Up, Up & Away!

A sunny card for (hopefully!) sunny weather today. I've used a stamp from the 'Bubbly' set by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils, added Glossy Accents to the balloons, then cut out. The papers from the '72 and Sunny' pad by We R Memory Keepers...I thought the cloud paper was just perfect to put behind the image...and it's glittery too! I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch on kraft card underneath the flowery piece, added a sentiment from the Penny Black 'Critter Party' set, and a couple of pieces of string.


Here's a close-up of the image:
