Baloon Tree

Well for a change I have managed to get a card made at the start of a challenge and not at the last minute. This is my final card for my Grand-daughter Kayla, this one is from her brother and sister.  I started off yesterday following this week's sketch for Papertake Weekly.  I had to rotate in because of the image I had decided to use.  I've just checked it again and think maybe I have tweaked it a bit too much, sorry ladies.  The image is a new stamp that I got from the Clarity Sale, it's called Balloon Tree and perfect for children's cards.  I coloured with Copics, using the colours of the flowers in the bp which is from a DCWV 12 x 12 stack that I found in W H Smith at half price, the other bp is Cuddly Buddly.  I matted and layered with silver mirror board and some purple lightweight card from my stash.  I used the same purple card for the punched border and the number 4.  The flower was punched with scraps from my bit box.  I am also entering my card into the My Time To Craft Challenge - Kids Kardz! and Cute Card Thursday's Challenge - Celebrations! 

I didn't manage to get the card completely finished yesterday, I just needed to add the flower, number and personalise it.  This morning I did a bit of blog hopping to check out some Friday Challenges and couldn't believer my luck when I got to CraftyAnn's Challenge.  It's a colour combo challenge of Lilac, Pink and Lemon and Kayla's card has all three plus some blue, green and orange so I can enter my card into Ann's challenge as well.

Not quite sure why my text is centred today, it wouldn't left justify for some reason.  Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for all your support and lovely comments, both are very much appreciated.
