Sweet Sunday Balloon

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC50. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.


I hope you had a wonderful holiday. It always seems to go by so quickly, but it sure is a lot of fun!!! Only 363 days til next Christmas...LOL!


I thought I'd move onto birthdays for today's sketch. The start of the year is always a big birthday time in my family so it's never too early to get going on cards. I have this card earmarked for my niece. I used the sweet My Balloon set from the Pure Innocence line at MFT. These little girls are soooooo adorable! I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured her with copics. I paper pieced her jumper though and added a little shine to the heart with my clear Glaze pen. The image is cut out with square Nestabilties. All the papers and ribbon are from my Spa Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions.

I added a little piercing around the image to jazz it up and ran the blue cardstock through my Apron Lace punch before adhering it to the card. The base is 5.25 inches square. I tied the perfect little bow using my Bow Easy tool then just attached it with a glue dot.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation to Karen's blog using the Mr. Linky tool. Now let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers created with this week's sketch.
