3 balloons

Hello and welcome to my blog.
Today's card features a bird from one of my favourite sets - Tim Holtz's bird crazy. I printed the sentiment from  my computer and stamped the bird direct to the card, and again on a seperate scrap. I have used Promarkers to colour - buttercup and arctic blue. The balloons are punched, again from scraps, and he is holding them tucked under his wing. I have cased this card from one I saw on Pinterest, but forgot to take details of the designer, sorry.

Hello and welcome to my blog.
Today's card features one of my favourite stamps from Paper Artsy. I have stamped it onto a dp using wilted violet distress ink. I stamped the butterfly part again on an extra piece and went over the outlines with my glue pen. I then laid gold leaf over and rubbed it in. After cutting it out I attached it with a glue dot in the centre. The sentiment is from a set by Lawn Fawn embossed in bright gold. The butterfly looks beautiful IRL, but my scan does not show it up well. Edited to add a photo which shows the gold better

'add a sticker'

Hi everyone.
Today's card is my entry for Southern Girls Challenge 'stuck on you'
I have used a piece of dp on my card front and added a strip of another down the left side. On this I layed a sheer ribbon which I gathered and stitched on.  The main picture is a sticker which I have attached to card and stitched around also. Finished off with a couple of matching buttons
