Sweet Sunday Balloon Bear

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC112.

I was fortunate to pick up some of the new TCP products when Alma was at my LSS a couple of weeks ago, but the sad part is I didn't have time to ink them up until now!

I used the new Catch My Drift set. This little bear is just adorable with his sweet expression. He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice buttercream and coloured with copics. I added sparkle to the balloons with a few Spica glitter pens. The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup collection.

I love how the Inside Pinking cut-up along the bottom echos the pointy shape of the stacking stars die-namics. I added some green apple twine and "pulled a Pedro" by wrapping it multiple times then separating the strands. I always love when Jackie does that, but she gets the ends to look so much more swoopy than mine.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.

I bet in reality looks better with the glitter, from these pictures I don't figure out how it is, but I imagine that. Anyway your card is cute with teddy bear and the balloons, is great for a kids party, btw my son birthday is coming :D
