Card making mojo!!

Today I created a card using this cute image from Meljen's Designs - Hot air balloon. I coloured it with my copics in colours that match the challenge at Meljens Design Team & Challenge Blog - Summer Brights Colours.  I added some sparkly embossing powder to the clouds and some pearl effects around the balloon swirls.  I continued the cloud effect with the paper in the background.

It was great making this card as I haven't embossed anything for ages or used brads.  My poor brad collection has been neglected so I'll have to remember to use them more often in future!

I've taken a close up photo so you can see the embossing a little better.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

  2. Imagination Crafts Challenges - Anything Goes
  3. Iron Craft Challenge - Inspiration 5

Wonderful card! Great color and layout. Love the touches of embossing, torn edges, and brads. We do have to remind ourselves occasionally about all the wonderful embellishments we have. They add such special touches. Thank you for sharing your card in the Sparkle N Sprinkle July Creative Challenge.
