Flying High...

Good afternoon...

Just squeezing in a little card to support the June Challenge at lovely Handmade Bliss.  If you have n't had a look there already, you really should visit...
The first thing to say though is thank you to Fi and the DT there because I would never in a month of Sunday's made a card in these colours were it not for the challenge being a colour theme!  I was fairly happy with it in the end, and i was able to add three little gems in the corner which means I can also enter this week's Challenge at 
Papertake Weekly - trio-tastic!

I used the gorgeous Stamping Bella Tiny Townie '- Blossom Loves Balloons.

I coloured her with Copics and added a dubious looking cloud formation! along with Glossy Accents to a balloon and some sparkle to her frock with a Clear Gelly Roll Pen.

I used Core d'inations Cardstock embossed with clouds and sanded and some papers from the Lili of the Valley Winter Wishes collection to create layers.

I added some twine and some adhesive gems as a simple embellishment.

...and here we are Tiny Blossom ... loving balloons... perhaps a little too much!

I'm JUST catching up on my commenting after being poorly at the weekend........ and wooooooowwww I nearly missed this beauty!! And can you believe... we both posted the same image on the same day? Great minds etc!!

Although you don't normally go for this colour theme (which scared me a bit too)... you made a WONDERFUL job of the card... you colouring is superb... and the layout perfect too! I love the embossed clouds (that embossing folder was in my hand too!) and the CAS design makes it perfect!

Big hugs

When you are soooo tiny, maybe a whole bunch of balloons is not such a good idea! That's the only thing that's not a good idea on this card...everything else is fabulous; I love the clever layout with the embossed layer and the colour combo is really fresh and pretty :-) A good thing to be pushed out of your comfort zone sometimes I think!

Big hugs, Kat xx
