Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up Card

Hi Peaches! I know it's been a while. I'm actually so happy to say that I've been blessed to be able to get back into teaching again, and that seems to be taking up quite a bit of my crafting time. That won't stop me, however, from getting in my craft room to play with all the amazing goodies in Stampin' Up!'s newest Occasions catalog. One bundle that I've really enjoyed lately is the "Lift Me Up" set. It has these gorgeous hot air balloons, billowy clouds, and adorable sentiments that match perfectly with the set.
                                    
For my card, I wanted to keep it monochromatic, so I watercoloring yhe background, using the Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise ink refill and my Wink of Stella pen for some added shimmer. Here's a photo of the shimmer up close:

When making my cards, I have started a new challenge for muse. My daughter just started kindergarten this past year and I decided that I would make a card to go in her snack/lunchbox every day. So for just about every "regular" sized card, I make a smaller, 3x3 version for her. Of course I choose an appropriate sentiment which often varies from the original. So in the photos below you'll see both sizes of this card. It's been a really fun challenge so far, and I may even continue next year. As always, thanks for stopping by!
