Anywho.. :/ Here goes.. please bare with me..
I used the new 'Carnival Balloon' from Set #6 which can be found over at Funky Kits HERE. Is she not the cutest? There are so many occasions she could be used for. This time round I went with an 'inspiring' sort of card. I have used Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers patterned paper, rub ons and brads. I have added each of the gems by hand in a swirl using Tombow Mono adhesive - I swear by the stufff.
The yummy flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I have used them alongside some Prima flowers. I have added some waxed thread and pearls to make them unique to the card. Other embellishments include lemon organza ribbon, rub ons and brads from the Max and Whiskers collection, a TH Philosophy tag and a orange gromet from my stash. The 'DREAM' sentiment has been stamped using an alpha stamp set from Studio G - the letters are the perfect size for cards.
Here is a close up of the Simply Sassy - Carnival Balloon. I have coloured her using Promarkers and also paper pieced sections of her dress and balloon:
Skin: Ivory, Blush, Saffron, Baby Pink
Eyes: Cornflower, Midnight Blue
Hair: Vanilla, Cocoa
Flowers in her hair: Pastel Blue, Duck Egg, Mango, Mandarin
Clothes and Shoes: Pastel Blue, Duck Egg, Denim Blue, Tulip Yellow, Mustard, Pastel Yellow Mango, Mandarin
Balloon: Pastel Blue, Duck Egg, Denim Blue, Mango, Mandarin
