Happy Balloon Day!

Hi again!  I didn't think I would be back today, but I managed to finish a card I was hoping to share for a couple of challenges.  It is for the Make it Crafty Facebook Sketch Challenge #5 and the Make it Colourful Challenge #5.  As usual, there was an easy and hard challenge for the Make it Colourful challenge.  I chose the easy one this time, which was to use blue and yellow for coloring.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I made a scalloped easel card using the sketch.  My card base and mats are SU Crushed Curry and the patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Melissa's Balloon from Make it Crafty. I printed her on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I fussy cut her and popped her up on foam tape.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some dotted Crushed Curry ribbon finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Skin: E50, E51, E21, E11, E13
Hair: E42, E44, E47
Dress and Shoes: BG000, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y18
Balloon Y11, Y13, Y15, Y18
