Love is In the Air - Our Craft Lounge

Good Morning Everyone!

Happy first Monday in March!! Today, I am so super excited today to be this month's guest designer for Our Craft Lounge every monday in the month of March!! Thank you so much to Kendra Weitstock for gifting me with this opportunity! 

I was lucky to meet Kendra at CHA in California last year - she is such a sweetheart and is so supportive, encouraging and positive! I had a lot of fun creating a card with the Love Is In the Air stamp set from OCL - love those balloons and super cute sentiments. I paper pieced the stripes on the balloon with some MME DP and then added some Cotton Candy Sparkly Fluff to the little ruffle around the top of the balloon. I love the different texture that the sparkly fluff gives the card. I stamped the clouds in the stamp set and popped them up - adding some liquid pearls on some of the clouds:

Card Ingredients:
Paper: MME DP
Inks: Memento Bahama blue and Tuxedo Black and copics
Accessories: May Arts ribbon, Spellbinders, sponger, liquid pearls, corner chomper, Cotton Candy Sparkly Fluff, bling and dimensionals.

I made this card for a very special friend of mine who is a dance teacher and put a show on this weekend in our town. She always inspires us to dance from our hearts, to feel the music as we dance, to push beyond our fears that might be holding us back from dancing - she is an amazing teacher and a wonderful friend! I love this sentiment - it is so perfect! I imagine all of us leaping into the air and touching the sky together! 

Thank you again to all the gals at Our Craft Lounge for letting me hang with you this month!
And thank you for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
