Less is More #347 Sketch 21

Happy Saturday everyone.  Let’s get right to it, shall we?  We have a great sketch challenge this week at Less is More (LIM).  Hope you will play along with us this week.  Please welcome back our sponsor this month Happy Little Stampers.  And to celebrate STAMPtember, they are offering free worldwide shipping till the end of the month!  Click here for all the details.














I made this card for a friend whose birthday is next week.  The air balloons were stamped on scraps of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out.  Salty Ocean distress ink was added with a mini blending tool to a white stitched rectangle panel to create the sky background.

The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black die cut banner.  The panel was adhered to a white top folding card base before assembling.  Clear shimmer on the balloons and a few clear sequins were added to finish.
