Balloon Kaylee

This card takes me back to when I first fell in love with making cards. One of my first loves in the card making world was Doodlebug Designs Inc and I still love them today, I love the bright colours and how everything co-ordinates. Another one of my first loves was colouring, back then it was with watercolour pencils not Copics but all the same I loved it and still do. I remember when I found 3D foam pads too - I thought they were the best thing since sliced bread! Anyways ... this card takes me back to where I started. Can you remember your first loves?

I have first stamped Some Odd Girl Balloon Kaylee out and coloured her with Copic Markers adding a little white Inkessentails pen to her eyes; she has been cut out and mounted to DB Dragonfly CS and added to the base with 3D foam pads. The base is a piece of DB Swimming Pool Swiss Dots paper mounted with more Dragonfly CS and wrapped around with PTI Hawaiian Shores Ribbon and then MME Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky "Together" Twine. I have then added a DB Swiming Pool Boutique Button with the twine and added the whole thing to a white card blank with 3D adhesive squares. A CC Designs Amy R sentiment stamped from the Birthday Sentiments collection on to more white card and mounted again; also added with 3D foam. Doodlebug Lily White Mini Jewels added to finish.
