I got to play with the fun Let's Celebrate Icons die set for my hop card. You need those balloon dies, I tell ya! =)


The balloons are cut with watercolor paper and colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. The little bear is from the Courteous Cuties set. He is stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink on the Rustic White card base then colored with Copic markers.


The confetti on the background is from the Let's Celebrate set and are stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is included in the Let's Celebrate set and cut using the matching die.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to leave comments along the way for a chance to win! =)

Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!
