Up, up in the air

Thursday means it's time to showcase some of the older images from the The Bugaboo Stamps Store. If you haven't been there lately, just a reminder - Jodie is sending some of her images into retirement with a GREAT sale - 75% discount!

My card today features the sweet Sock Elephant Balloon. I colored it with Promarkers and added a good amount of glossy accent on the balloon.
The metal charm that I attached to the red string has a birthday greeting on it. The only other element I added was a die cut cloud (Memory Box).
This card will go into my pile of cards for children that I will hand over to my younger sister who has two boys, aged 6 and 7, who are invited to a lot of birthday parties.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Digi Choosday Challenge - #16 Spots & Dots
2) Crafty Cardmakers - Dots
3) Send a Smile for Kids - Birthday card for a child

Cute as can be. I expect if I didn't see this design colored up as you've done it, I might overlook it. With the way you've showcased it, and that bright red balloon, the wonderful gray & white dot background, it really grabs the eye. Love the tiny dimensional cloud hanging over this cutie. Well done. TFS & Hugs
