Balloon Bear

Hi everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Spring is definitely in the air around here!  Daffodils are in bloom everywhere and the sunshine and warmer weather had a lot of people out and about.  I did  more goofing off than anything else!  I only got a couple of cards made, but I enjoyed the time I spent with friends and with our dogs.  I hated losing that hour to daylight savings time though!

I've got a card to share today using Fawn Palmer's adorable little Balloon Bear.  I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked the sky.

I cut apart the balloon and made my own string with some pink embroidery floss.  I will probably end  up using this for a birthday card, but I've left a sentiment off for now in case I use it for a different reason.

There is a brand new challenge up on Squigglefly's blog today.  I hope you will come play along!

Love that bit a thread you used for the balloon string! I would have fussy-cut the bear out, but your gorgeous patterned paper would have lost the bear in a second and I would have messed it up! Love it just the way it is.
