Balloon Riley


Hello! The challenge this week on the Riley and Company blog is a sketch challenge. I decided to use one of my newest Riley stamps for this one. Of course I love Riley, but I also love his little balloon bouquet that he is hanging on to. For some reason, I just love images that have balloons. I think they just remind me of happiness. I remember being a little girl and every once in a while we would go somewhere and come away with a helium filled balloon and those were always happy places so I just always associate balloons and happiness and they always make me smile!

My card uses the sketch provided on the challenge blog, I used Balloons Riley, colored with Copic markers, DCWV papers, a Fiskars border punch and some star trim from Making Memories. The sentiment was cut out using Nestibilities and the sentiment is from CTMH's Solos S set.
