How is everyone today?? I'm doing great, i made 6 cards Sunday! Yep i was in the groove!! I'm sharing one today! This card didn;t turn out quite like a planned but i still really like it!! Since i did a bunch of coloring i am entering this into Marker Pop's Anything Goes Challenge #60! I'm going to have to place an order at Marker Pop soon, i need more Copic colors!!! I'm thinking yellow and orange, or maybe pink and purple.... its so hard to choose!!

Anyway, so my plan for my card was a one layer card but it didn't turn out that way! lol! I started with a white card base and used The Alley Way Stamps Bubbly and Cake Day to create my background.

I used Memento ink since next i colored it with Copic markers. I think i used every marker i have except my skin and brown colors! (i don;t have very many markers!).

So i was about 95% done with my coloring when i messed up a balloon. To cover up my mistake i stamped 3 balloons from Cake Day, cut them out and added some black twine to the backs of them. I added the balloons to my card with foam tape and added a little grey Copic for shading. I tied a bow around the twine tails and then adhered it to my card.
