Going Up

Hi ya, all! Hope you are having a lovely weekend! =) Here is a card that I made using an adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil.


This has to make you smile, no? =) I want a big balloon that will pick me up like that, too!


This image is called Going Up (see the boy version here) and it's printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then trimmed to size. I took the advantage of the image and have the balloon floating out of frame.


The bits of patterned paper strips are from On The Sunny Side 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye and the sentiment is from Heyday set by Hero Arts/Studio Calico.

That's it for now. For more inspiration using images from Mo's Digital Pencil, please visit Mo's Dream Team Blog. =)


Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!
