Birthday Balloon

i made this card for a very special someone who loves elephants – happy birthday! you might remember that i used the wplus9 bubble talk elephant on two previous cards and they were so well received that i *had* to get the unforgettable stamp set too.


i had so much fun watercolouring this adorable image; as usual, i watercoloured with twinkling H2Os and i added clear wink of stella to the balloon for extra shimmer. the tiny stars were randomly stamped in green since the recipient’s favourite colours are purple and green.

i’d like to submit this to the wplus9 Throwback Thursday Challenge #8 – Fair Isle Backgrounds – not exactly the right stamps or colours, but i was inspired to make a CAS card.

thanks for popping by.

  1. This is so sweet, and the elephant is too cute! Love the colours you used, and your colouring is awesome. The tiny green stars in the background really add to the card.

  2. Sweetness personified with your skillful WCing, Linda. I’m still in awe, after all these years, with your capabilities to select sweet images and then color them so they make such statements! Perfectly crafted.
