Balloon Trio

Hi!  It's time for another fabulous sketch challenge from SugarPea Designs.  Check out this sketch:

For my card, I decided to not use one of the main images in a set, but to focus on one of the smaller images - in this case one of the balloons from Tons of Fun.

I started with a white card base and onto that I adhered some patterned paper layered onto black cardstock.  I stamped the balloon three times and colored them with Copics.  I then cut them out, minus the strings, and tied some silver thread around each one.  I then adhered them with foam tape to circles cut with a Zig Zag Stitched Circle die, making sure the thread was caught by the balloons below.

The sentiment was stamped onto a die-cut banner from Gift Tag and mounted onto the card with foam tape.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the amazing cards created by the rest of the design team
