Celebrations Galore

It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! The sponsor this week is Little Blue Button I used an image and sentiments from the digi set named "Happy Birthday Charlie." I colored the birthday girl with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The colorful balloons are made with scraps of several plastic document folders. They come in a pack of assorted colors and can be found in the office supply section of most stores. I really like using them on my cards because they're often cheaper than colored vellum and are more translucent.  You can write on them with a fine-line permanent marker [which I used to trace the balloons. Sometimes I trim the marker lines when cutting them out. This time I left the outline to help the balloons stand out. The plastic is easy to fussy-cut with a nice, sharp pair of scissors].

My final entry into Di's Digi Stamps Sweet Summertime challenge features the adorable image, "Special Day Ted." I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen then adhered him atop the patterned paper and a rectangle of vellum. The sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC Blogspot. You can find it HERE. I am entering this card into several challenges including A2Z scrapbooking, adding a nice layer of glitter to Ted's hat to make him sparkle a bit when watching fireworks.
