Hello out there! It's been a while......

I have no excuse....I was trying to come up with something that was witty....fingers cut off in a freak die cutting incident.....santa delivering me so much stash that it has taken me so long to break free (God, wish that had been true! Lol!); that kind of thing! But I can't. So, I will admit that the mojo went off on holiday, taking with it as a travelling companion my will to resist any form of chocolate. I was even tempted at one point by a minty Aero bar - and I can't stand minty chocolate (and fruity creamy ones too - if anyone is interested!!) Lol!
So, with a pair of larger jeans and a new pair of scissors (the will to craft shop remained ever present!!) I made this card for my friend's 40th birthday - I know it does not say 40th on it! But it was for that special day.
These are NitWit papers that I bought from The PaperLane, a pretty new Magnolia and a Whimsy Sentiment. I quite like the way it all looks together - especially with a spritz of pearl mist to make everything sparkle. The balloon was coloured with Copics (no change there then!!) and then painted with Tattered Angels Glam - it is so sparkly in real life! This was topped off with the Zva Creative crystal flourishes just to top off the sparkles!

I'm entering this card for the special monthly challenge at Just Magnolia as it is 'Anything Goes' with ribbons! Quite proud of myself - have managed to blog and enter a challenge on the same day! Wonders will never cease! Lol!

Thanks so much for visiting! Kx
