I don't know if I'm being wise, but it's something that I must believe in...and it's there when I look in your eyes...

Happy Sunday, everyone! I had a moment of quiet while doing laundry, and the boys are at a friend's house playing, so I thought I'd pop in and post a quick card.

I made this one a while back, but had hoped for it to get picked up for publication. I haven't heard back, so you guys win! *wink*

I fell madly in love with the Love in the Air set from Unity the second I saw it. I actually made this the day I got the set in the mail. There's nothing better than getting new stamps in the mail, and going straight in to ink them up!

This is a clean and simple card...super easy. I stamped the balloon in Memento Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I then cropped the image, but cut around the balloon so it sticks up over the edge. Then I added the sentiment and a thicker black mat. For the background, I stamped the sentiment repeatedly on an angle in Versamark ink on Kraft cardstock. I love how this looks! A little red ribbon and Diamond Stickles finish it off.

Well, the dryer just buzzed, so I have to run...thanks for checking in on me today! Have a fabulous Sunday!

Such a beautiful card. So simple, yet so striking! I love how you cut around the balloon so that it is coming "out of the box". I need to try that :0)
