Hi! This card was made for today's Sketch Challenge.
Speedy the Cat is a Balloon-A-Holic! He is ADDICTED to them. Now, we don't allow balloon in the house. We have too many 4 footed family members. However, every once in a while, SOMEONE ties a balloon outside our picture window! Speedy the Cat goes CRAZY!!! He paws and howls at the balloons! It's like CatNip, but BETTER! LOL!
Last evening a balloon mysteriously appeared! So, I KNEW I would have to use balloons on today's card! (I THINK the SOMEONE is my father. He's in a VERY good mood, as Mother is coming home from the hospital TODAY! YEAH!!!) However, Dad will never tell! LOL!
The images are sneak peeks from Flourishes! They were stamped on Whisper White and colored with Copic Markers. I cut out the images and mounted them with foam tape.
The stars are Sizzix Die Cuts. I ran the stars through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and sponged on ink to highlight.
