Hello, thank you for stopping by....

 Going for a splash of colour with today's DL card!

I've used the balloon die set, included are 4 different style balloons, strings and a bow 

I coloured white card stock with distress inks prior to die cutting the balloons.  Once the strings had been adhered to the back of the balloons and they were in place on the card I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in 'Morning Dew' to each one and when dry the bows were added

I used two Pixie Powder colours for the splashes of colour at the bottom of the card, the blue colour isn't as dark as it is showing on here, I also ran a Nuvo Glue Pen over the area and sprinkled 'glitter jewels' over the glued area

The sentiment was stamped, die cut, colour added to the edge and adhered to the card

The verse was stamped onto grey marl paper using one of the stamps from the 'Amazing Sentiments' collection, and stamped with 'shaded lilac' distress ink

I added the splash of pixie colour down one side of the envelope and stamped 'Birthday Mail' using StazOn Jet Black ink pad
A 4"x6" card with softer colour tones added at the bottom, pretty enough for a little girl, would you agree?

    1. Hi Ang, lovely hearing from you. I hope you've had a good Christmas and the new year will prove to be better, health wise, for you.... I'm hoping the same for myself as the past few months or so have been awful

      I think the balloons are fairly new, love the different shapes

  3. Two lovely cards June especially for children. Unless very young sometimes find a bit older more difficult. Thank you for sharing these.
