Balloon Bouquet

I was really drawn to these two papers and have used them to create a card with a much softer colour palette.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Designed 2 Delight - use supplied image
Sweet Sketch Wednesday- Sketch

The sketch that I have rotated is this one:

The papers that I have used come from a paper pack by Glitz.  I usually layer the top background paper onto cardstock and then onto the bottom background paper.  This week I decided that I would use peelcraft stickers for the red border on the sketch.  I have used some gold glitter tape from American Crafts.  I found a packet of silver glittery ribbon roses that I thought would look nice on cards as embellishments.  However, the silver clashed with the colours on the card so I got out my copic markers and coloured it.  It now matches the flowers in the background paper.  I have used copic markers C1 and R02 for the colouring.  The image is from Designed 2 Delight and is called Balloon Bouquet.

  5. These papers are gorgeous Suze. I really like the simplicity of the layout. Thanks for popping by today and leaving all your lovely comments. I hope that you and your daughter had fun at the craft fair. I was just mentioning to my husband tonight that it really doesn't feel like Christmas yet. I hope it hits soon, I'm running out of days! Take care and if I don't talk to you before then, have a wonderful Christmas!
