Let's Celebrate!

It's the first warm, sunshiny day we've had in Ohio in a long time, and it made me want to break out the bright colors and create something cheery!  I used some stamps and dies from Paper Smooches and some neon inks from Hero Arts to create this card.

Paper Smooches:  Balloons dies, Kissables 2 stamp set, Geo-Graphic stamp set, Off the Charts stamp set, Scripty Sayings stamp set -  Hero Arts neon orange, pink, blue and green inks - Ranger archival ink in black - Rock Candy Distress stickles
I die cut the balloons from white cardstock, stamped them with neon inks and adhered with foam adhesive for a little dimension.  The background for the sentiment was stamped with blue neon ink, and then the sentiment was stamped over top with black archival ink and fussy cut.  I added some doodled balloon strings, a twine bow, and some little plastic dots made from melted perler beads.
I'm entering this card in the Paper Smooches Sparks "Anything Goes" challenge and the Sentimental Sundays "Add a Doodle" challenge.
