Ann Vento (me!)
For my card today, I've done some merging and watercoloring again! This time, I've used two of Meljen's new images: Party Time Cat and Party Penguin. The sentiment is from the Fanciful Birthday Notables 1 set (cut out using the Notables 1 die) that was also just recently released. Do you see that awesome chipboard frame around it?! Well, of course it was designed from the oh-so-talented Zoe and is also available at Whimsy HERE. The balloons were cut out using the Whimsy Stamps Balloon Die Set and given a little character using various Cuttlebug embossing folders. I thought it would be fun to use some twine to tie up the balloons to the die cut :)
The big die cut behind the image is a Cherry Lynn die and I actually broke my Cuttlebug trying to cut it out :( Luckily, I have the Grand Calibur as a backup, but that thing takes forever to roll through something. As soon as I have some money, I will be replacing my dear old Cuttlebug.
Anywho, hope you enjoy my creation for today! Make sure you come back again tomorrow for card!
