It had to be mailed away, I know she received it, so I can share it now :)
Isn't she cute.
This card was going to go a whole different way, but that is how it works sometimes ;)
I coloured this cute Prima image with my much loved Copic markers.
I coloured her all in browns as I was planning on doing a different background, but then changed my mind as I wanted to use this new balloon background paper.
Can you see I added some embossing paste around the image :)
I wanted it to look like confetti, I coloured the dots but then didn't really like how they turned out…so added white to cover them up again.
I did use some sequins to hopefully distract you from any left over colour that the white couldn't cover up.
You know, I think this is the very first time using sequins for me.
Remember those banners I picked up from Target last week… I used some on both the front and inside of this card.
With me colouring her dress in the browns, I needed the balloon background paper to be more antique looking, so I added distress ink to tone down the brightness of the paper.
If you look at the inside of the card, that is the actual colour of the balloon paper as I didn't add distress ink to the inside of the card.
Lookie here, I made a video on the making of this card.
I really should do process videos on my cards….but I usually don't have a plan before I start.

I have to chuckle at my starting to enter challenges, as the last card I entered, I totally forgot to link my blog/card to the challenge blogs linky's , lol
I am entering this card in "Always Playing with Paper" challenge.
I know I had entered my last card in this same challenge, but I love this sketch. My card also fits their colour challenge as well :)
I hope you all had a very Creative Monday :)
