Love is in the Air


The challenge this week at Scrap, Stamp & Doodle Saturdays is to make a card about love. Very fitting for the week, no?

I am in the mode of using sets that have yet to see ink, so I went to my stash of TAC sets and found this darling little girl holding a balloon! With a little help of the Hearts & Brackets Sizzix die, I changed the shape of her balloon. :) Much better for the occasion!

Stamps: main image is TAC, sentiment Timeless Love (Paper Pretties)
Paper: PTI Stampers Select White, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Asparagus patterned paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics to color
Accessories: Poppy Parade ribbon, skittles, Hearts & Brackets Sizzix die, stickles. Glassy Glaze, white gel pen, SU Scallop Edge punch


Hope you have a fabulous long weekend!

So cute! I love how you made the balloon dimensional. If you hadn't said, I never would've guessed you changed the shape. It looks like it was always that way. :)
