Bella's Birthday!

Hi crafty friends!!
Happy Monday!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I feel like it kinda flew by!

I have a really fun/ adorable card to share with you today.  I often look at others cards and go woah! I love that card! but don't often do it to my own, but I have to say I really love how this card turned out lol. 
I discovered these super adorable stamps from Wild Rose Studio. I'm not sure if they're a newer company or just new to me but wow they're so cute.
This particular stamp is called Bella's Birthday.

I started with water color paper and did the ink "smooshing" technique. I put some Distress inks on some acetate , spritz them with water and smooshed it on my background. I also sprayed the background with some heirloom gold perfect pearls mist. Once my background was dry I stamped my sentiment from the Unforgettable set from W plus 9 and my main image. I mainly stamped my image on my background as a guide where to put my image onece i had colored it with copic and cut it out, I also wanted the string for the balloon in the background and I wasn't going to attempt to fussy cut that out.:P
I used gold glitter paper with the Twine & Bows die from Pretty Pink Posh to put on the side, I very much think that die is genius!:)
I then scatted my card with some sequins also from PPP.
I knew I wanted to layer my card on some sort of teal color to pull the card all together but I didn't have any card stock that quite matched the color of my balloon so I used white card stock and colored the edges with the same Copic marker I used to color the balloon. I then adhered my panels onto a white card base.

Copics used:
V06 V12 R20 R32 C3 C1 BG13 BG15 RV04 RV02 

That's it for me today! Hope you enjoyed this fun birthday card.
Have a lovely Monday!!
