I haven't done a card in weeks! I love all the challenges, just can't get motivated. I have been busy reorganizing and cataloging my stamps. And I am taking a water color class with my DH. It is not same as what I did here. For one thing stamping the image is a lot easier than sketching it! That is why I stamp in the first place. :) Then is class we are using large brushes. LOL I like using little brushes and painting with the ink and water out of the lid of the ink pad, like I did here. This is for the MIX39 challenge to use watercolor. I also added Glossy effects to the balloons. This is supposed to be a CAS card, because I need ones that aren't bulky to send thru the mail w/o extra postage. Then it was too CAS for me, so added the little punched dots. :)
Have a great week-end. Can't believe it is here already! TFL

What a pretty color, Sharon! Love the small embellishments too! I do love your description of the watercolor class and had to giggle! And DH goes with you? I dragged mine to a Tim Holtz workshop once. He liked it! Drawing is not my thing either. Can't wait to see what you do in the class and hope you post it!

Sharon, this card is so beautiful! I love the blue colours, of coarse, and that blue polka dot paper is lovely. The die cut border (or punched?) is perfect and the glossy effects on the balloons is a wonderful addition.
