Balloons @ Just Us Girls!



Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 10.46.28 PMHello Friends!  It’s Trend week over at Just Us Girls and it seems that balloons of any kind never go out of style in the card making world, so that is our trend for the week.  I also am linking my card up to this week’s Freshly Made Sketch which was the source of my starting point.  You should have seen all my different attempts to a card till I finally settled on this one.  It reminded of those days when you are getting dressed for work in the morning and every outfit looks terrible and you just keep changing your mind till you have a pile on the bed in front of you.   Well, that is what happened with this card…LOL  It had many do overs!   I still have a lot to learn when it comes to coloring, but I think the card came out kinda cute, plus it’s quite different than my usual style.

FMS Final 203-001

Card Info: The balloon was made from a hand drawn template. The ladybug stamp is something I picked up who knows where and who knows how long ago, probably 10+ years. The happy birthday banner is Stampin Up.  The you is a script from Verve and the TO was made with those small alphabet stamps that always come in handy!

I sure appreciate all your sweet comments and visits lately…you sure know how to make a girl feel good!

Have a wonderful day and please won’t you come on over to Just Us Girls this week and join us?  Nanc’
