Up...up...and away!

I made a little circular card yesterday using my Nesties. I cut the scalloped shaped from a Papermania 'kraft' card blank (being careful to leave a hinge!), than added a piece of sparkly cloud paper (from the '72 & Sunny' pad by We R Memory Keepers). The cat is from the 'Bubbly' set by Penny Black - I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then cut him out. I added Glossy Accents to the ballons - it looks a bit dodgy in the photo, as it was still wet when I photographed it...but it looks nice and smooth now it's dry. The sentiment is a stamp from the Hero Arts 'Anytime Messages' set...I stamped it on to the off-cut from the card blank, then cut out the individual letters - I stamped it twice, as some of the letters were really close together, so it was difficult to get a clean edge.
