Birthday bear and balloon

This week's challenge over at Catch the Bug is a photo inspiration:
I was inspred by the flowers and their colors. I colored the image with DIs and added glossy accent to the balloon. The flowers are punched, I used a black pen to make the faux stitching on the petals and attahed brown enamel dots in the centres. I stamped a birthday greeting and machine stitched around the edges.

This card is also for:
Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute + Birthday
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Crafty Gals Corner - #90 Critters

CAS at it's best Pia the punched flowers add dimension but don't take away from the clean feel of your card

Donna Ellis said...

LOL! Beyond cute is this adorable image! LOVE IT! Your take on the inspiration photo is fabulous, Pia! Such happiness, and laughter galore, with this little guy. However, I must say that it also reminds me of Harry Potter's aunt who blows up like a balloon and ends up in the sky bobbing around like an unpopped helium balloon! LOL

The stitching adds to your darling factor on this sweetie!

This is a sweet card, Pia! What an adorable image! Love the sunflowers along the bottom! I hope the bear will be okay... I wonder where he will end up floating away like that!

I love this - hope he lands softly in the flowers. What a lovely, simple colour combo.

This is adorable, Pia! Those brown-eyed Susans, your machine stitching and the glossiness all add up to one unique and special card! I think the sediment should be "Wheeeeeeeeeee!" Hugs, Darnell

What a cutie! I would have not throught to add the faux-stitching to the petals... or to add enamel dots to the centers for that matter! I'm gonna go play catch-up now. It has been a very busy 3 weeks... and it ain't over. My MIL had a stroke yesterday, and while she is my neighbor, this happened while she was visiting three hours away! It's been a whirlwind 30+hours on top of a busy few weeks... I need a craft-cation for therapeutic purposes! XO
