Watercoloured Balloons

Hi everyone. I made a very quick card tonight and now it's time for my beauty sleep. 

I used my stitched rectangle dies to create the faux stitching around the edge of my card and also to create my frame for the balloons.

I stamped and masked the balloon from the HLS Simply Said stamp set using my MISTI. I embossed them with black powder. The sentiment is from the Fun Birthday Sentiments set which, alas, has been retired.

The balloons were coloured using Zig Watercolour pens. Once dry, I covered the them with WOS in clear.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Cut It Up  - You've got me in stitches (real or faux)

Double D Challenges - Things that Fly (mood board below)

Thanks for popping in today and goodnight :)
