Love Balloon

Good evening everyone!  Aahhh what a relaxing day!  No work for me today! and weather was gloomy so I just stayed in drank coffee all day and made a new card to play along with a couple of challenges! I MUST admit that the hardest part about making a card for me is the layout of my card.. A great paper friend of mine Cheryl ( Hi Cheryl ! )  recommended me to a VERY inspiring blog by Amy Sheffer called pickled paper designs  If you haven't seen her site yet, you must check it out!
today I am entering my card into 2 differant challenges: color throw down the challenge is to use the following colors:

and I'm also entering my card in to the Mojo Monday sketch challenge

using a sketch layout was a TON of help for me! maybe after following a few sketch challenges I'll get better at my layouts! I also had a Ton if inspiration this week from my new paper friend Marilyn ( Hi Marilyn! ) and from a blog called sending you a little smile these ladies do a lot of multiple stamping of the image and layering to make the image 3D! here is my take on it!!
Today I used a stamp from a company called Elzybells, which I'm sad to say is no longer opened. I used my Copics to color my image and Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage photo to distress my edges. And of course i couldn't forget my diamond glaze and yellow stickles!
Please pretend that you dont see my bubbles in my diamond glazed balloon :(
