#99 Barry Balloons
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - cute & cuddly
Sponsor & prize this week - Stamp Fairy ($10 gift certificate)
The I ♥ Promarker team have all been given an image from our sponsor this week, Stamp Fairy to create their cards with and this image is one from the 'Barry Birthday' range and I have given him some bright & happy party colours around him, even if he himself looks a bit perplexed. LOL. Maybe he has just eaten too much ice cream! LOL.
The image has, of course, been coloured with my ever-ready Promarkers and whilst I still cut my circles by hand I have Spellbinders to thank for the scalloped circle and scalloped edgability. Whilst I was very good and kept this card nice & flat to make it post-friendly, I can never resist a little bit of dimension so set Barry's mat up using glue gel.
The inside of the card vaguely echoes the design layout of the front but this time the circular mat supporting the sentiment from Sentiments4You (Crafts4You), was kept flat so that it would fit into the envelope more easily.
Challenges I wish to enter this card for are:
Sunday's With Crissy - beat the mid winter blues ( he is too colourful to be dismal!) LOL

Fussy 'n' Fancy - happy birthday (or animal print)
