Congratulations Blimp

Eeps!  I’m a little late posting this card today but it is cute so you’ll forgive me won’t you? :)

I stamped a blimp and one of the banners from the In the Clouds stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.  I used the matching dies to cut them out.  I decided that I needed a cloudy background so I pulled out the new Clouds Border Die from Taylored Expressions and cut a strip of cardstock that I used as a template to create the clouds.


Because blimps are fun I decided to coat this one with Crystal Stickles.  To finish the card I added a few buttons, a length of ribbon and Bisque Liquid Pearls.


So what do you think of the color combination of Turquoise and Yellow?  I must admit this isn’t one that I would come up with on my own… the pretty colors of the designer paper inspired me. :)
