Courtney issued a sketch challenge over on Practicing Creativity's blog as part of their release celebrations this month and I put this card together and have been trying to figure out what's off about it. I tried fun clouds made with print, then I tried white clouds just glued to the page, then I raised and embossed the clouds... And now I am trying to accept that I don't have time to redo this card. Love the bit of glitter on the balloon, was trying to do something from the PTI Make It Monday glitter challenge the other week, but my pieces of scor tape ended up in little pieces. What sort of adhesive should I have used to make the glitter go all the way across the balloon? If I had more time I would've taken this apart and tried something else, but in the end the car packing/kid organizing took priority. So, here's my second card for the sketch challenge. Next up getting the kid sorted for bed after spending 4 hours in the car.
