Hello my friends!  How are you today?  I hope all is well, and everyone is staying healthy.  It's the start of a new month, so that means we have a new challenge beginning today at 2CCC.  This month's sponsor is  Bugaboo, which you should all know by now is my favorite digi stamp company!

Here is my card:

I chose to use one of the many images in my stash, and this one is called Mouse big balloonHe is so ADORBS!!  Just perfect for a birthday card!  I picked out 2 patterned paper scraps from the Hopscotch 12x12 Colorbok paper pad, and built my card from there.  I also based my card composition on a Papertake Weekly sketch.  I covered the 5.5" square card base with a piece of textured card stock from the 12x12 Craft Smith Turquoise paper pad.  The die cut balloons are also cut from this card stock.  The image was colored using a combination of Copics and Prismacolor markers.  All of the balloons have lots of shimmer thanks to a  clear Wink of Stella pen.  I used some crochet thread to make strings for the die cut balloons, because hubby said they wouldn't look right without strings, LOL!  The sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink with the help of the MISTI.  It comes from a set called Happy Everything, but I do not know the brand.  The tiny balloon stamp also comes from this set.

Here are a couple different views of my card:


Love to Craft #56:  ATG (2/5)

Crafty Animals #48:  ATG using animals
A Place to Start #3:  Pick a Shape (square) (2/8)

Thank you all for stopping by!  Don't forget to make a pitstop over at the 2CCC blog to see what the rest of the DT have created using Bugaboo critter images!  Until next time my friends,
Stay Healthy, Take Care and God Bless!
