I just had to pull out my adorable li'l teddy bear and pair him up with these big balloons. After all, he needs some big balloons to help him lift off! I paper pieced my balloons and colored teddy with Copic markers. I sponged Soft Sky, Barely Banana, and Mellow Moss on the background. I used my notched corner punch and threaded pink embroidery thread around that.
I keep praying that Stampin' Up will bring back permanently some of the In Colors they've introduced these past few years. I especially love the softness of Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky.
In any event, CONGRATULATIONS, Pat on being Queen for the Day! You're one of the bestest!!
I made my next card for the Twisted Sisters challenge to case a card of JamiePTS who happens to be Pat's daughter-in-law! How cool that they both were honored by being featured in challenges this weekend! I cased Jamie's darling truck load of love card as I needed to make a birthday card for my grandson.
I used SU reinkers to watercolor my scene, except for the sky, which I sponged Soft Sky using a post-it note punched with the scallop punch as my template.
Happy Birthday, Brody! We love you!
