Treat Yourself

Treat yourself . . . to some fun . . . maybe a bright colorful balloon?!

Well, us adults may not think a bright, colorful balloon is much to be excited about, but this cute little party dragon sure does. I remember when my son LOVED balloons, we couldn't get in and out of Wal-Mart without one. I barely notice any there now, but when he was little . . . they were EVERYWHERE! lol

This bright, cheerful card was SO much fun to make. I used the card sketch from SCS 225 and the colors were easy -- brights for kids of course. I just had to grab my Lime Rickey BG paper pad and match the card stock (bordering blue, brilliant blue and gable green cs from SU!) with the colors I used on the dragon image (prismacolor pencils and gamsol for him). Then I added a scrap of red polka dot ribbon from a hot cocoa gift that worked perfectly with this bright little guy. The balloon has crystal effects on it too, but not so noticable in the photo.

Highlights and stitching were also added with my Signo white gel pen to the image and the extra balloons on the inside. The sentiment was from the Sugarplum sentiment set from C.C. Designs.

Hope everyone has a bright, cheery weekend. We are hoping it doesn't rain Saturday, as we will be up at the farm hopefully shearing the alpacas.
Hugs,
