It’s Playtime!

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Child’s Play.We have the fabulous The Sugar Kissed Cottage as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the super cute Balloon Girl by The Sugar Kissed Cottage and coloured her with  Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Some white highlights have been added with a souffle pen.I chose a pretty First Edition floral paper to go with her.I punched a strip of kraft cut from another card blank.Some new goodies arrived in the post just in time for me to play with them 🙂 I’m really pleased with the button stamp and die and am totally in love with the alphabet tiles 😀 I’ve added  some flowers cut from dies already in my collection.Two types of hairy stingy stuff has been threaded through the button style shapes.

    Hey Lisa! I really like the Kraft wide border (die cut?) behind your image – and the balloon you allowed to escape from the box! Super fun!
