Birthday Passionette…

Hello everyone I hope you are well and back into your weekly routine. Today is a special day my lovely downline Bekka celebrates her birthday. And here’s the card I have sent her

bekka's up, up

Bekka loves blue so a base of Marina mist was in order. I finally found my Up, Up and Away stamp set (yay) and chose to use it fro Bekka’s card. I love this fun set and I had a bit of extra fun by adding the hot air balloons to some strips of transparency before attaching them to the front of the card. This gave the card a playful look which is both fun and eyecatching.

The clouds have been punched out with the Cupcake builder punch currently unavailable but hopefully it will find its way back in the main catalogue later in the year. And I embossed the clouds with the tiny hearts embossing folder, I wanted to send clouds full of love to Bekka not full of rain :)

the hill was cut with one of the edgelits from some designer paper found in the Tea  Time Scrapbooking kit.
