Best Wishes

Hey, hey!  How are you this Monday?

I wanted to pop in and share another cutie card I made while at my friend Katie's place.  This one is remarkably different from the card I posted yesterday.  I used the fun Fusion Challenge for inspiration, and chose to use Lesley's picture of that sweet red umbrella.

To start, I took a piece of patterned paper, and stamped some clouds (Mama E's new Sunny Skies) using white pigment ink.  I then splattered on some white mist from Studio Calico and rounded the corners.

I then stamped the hot air balloon image, fussy cut it out and adhered it to my card front, above a bit of stitching and the stamped basket.  To finish it off, I stamped my sentiment from Filigree, and adhered it to my card base.  Of course, we can't forget a sprinkle of bling...

Here is the inspirational pic:
