Thank You Card ~ Wishing For Sunny Days

Happy Monday everyone.
I had fun playing with glittery paper and dies today.

so I could walk out there in my bare feet and pick those flowers.

Birthday Card ~ Blue Skies

Am I the only one that has issues with the 
colored Wink of Stella Glitter markers?
I finally invested in a couple since I LOVE my clear one.
I colored up my balloons and the colors were beautiful.
I can't get the green one to leave behind any glitter.
The glitter in the pink one goes down beautifully.
A few hours later when I got home and tried to take pictures 
the glitter was ALL gone and the colors had totally changed.
I ended up adding the glitter using my clear marker 
{I used regular white card stock on the balloons}
I took the last photo under a light so the glitter would show.
Okay on to my card.
I used a stencil and distress stamp pads to create my background.
I like how the texture looks on the watercolor paper.
To finish off I added the die cut sentiment.
I sponged the paper first so it would match the sky.





*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Hot air balloons from the Blue Skies stamp set from Lawn Fawn.
*Hot air balloons cut using the Blue Skies die set from Lawn Fawn.
*Sentiment cut using the Happy Birthday Border die from Lawn Fawn.
*Wink of Stella pink, green and clear glitter pens from Zig.
*Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress stamp pads from Ranger.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pads from Tsukineko.
*E17 marker from Copic.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
