Girl with Balloon

Today, I'm excited to be a guest designer over at  TTCRD!  I admit, I play there every week; so, I'm very happy to share some inspiration alongside this talented team!

I have the opportunity to design using Girl with Balloon from Stamp On It!  Stamp On It has a HUGE variety of stamps and it wasn't easy choosing!  I saw this little cutie and it made me think of the late Victorian Era meets American Folk Art!  Her determined face just grabbed my heart immediately!  

I started in Cricut Design Space and printed her onto a tag cut from Polkadoodles Winnie in Wonderland which has a vintage feel.  I also added 5 more balloons from Winnie Special Moments.  Finally, I chose a birthday sentiment and typed it in American Typewriter font.   I chose to Copic color her in YR: 18, 15, 12 with a highlight of YR21.  The brown balloons are in my favorite Earth tones of E: 35, 33, and 31.  

I layered the colored cut on top of two more tag cuts from Belle Papillon embellishing the largest with a Wide Eyelet from We R Memory Keepers and some baker's twine from my stash.  The card is finished off with some flower petals, lace, and a bow from stash.  

This little birthday sweetie is off to the following challenges:  
Aud Sentiments:  Birthday Sentiment
Craft-Dee BowZ:  AG w/a handmade bow
Scrap from your Heart:  Use Dies (Tags are all die cuts)
Sweet Stampers:  Birthday
Splashy Mix:  Orange color/ flowers from MoodBoard; Mixed media includes:  lace, metal, twine, copic, ink, wood in flower, paper, etc

Thanks for dropping by today.  It's always great to have company!  Please feel free to peruse other pages/posts, visit my Pinterest,  or view some videos at my YouTube Channel.
