Reading Adventures & Cute Pirate Kids

Happy Sunday!! I have a couple of hybrid cards to share with you today.

I used Kerry Stewart's beautiful Reading Adventureskit to make this card. This hot air balloon scene is from one piece of digital paper. I resized and trimmed it to the size that I wanted. I also pop doted an extra set of hot air balloons and text cloud (too cute!) on top.

I curled the sides of the hot air balloons to get a more realistic dome shape. To finish it, I hand stitched a matching border around the card. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Kerry's kit is available separately. You can find the papers hereand the extras here and the full kit here.

I used another piece of patterned paper from Kerry's kitfor the background on my second card. I thought that this background is perfect for a "dream big" card.

The adorable little pirate girl is from Holly Brooke Jones' Cute Pirate Kids Stickers. There is also a boy pirate in the kit. They both come in black & white and pre-colored, just in case you don't like to color! The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Please click hereto see all the digital releases at Two Peas.

That's all for today. Hope you have a fabulous Sunday!! =)
