POP Goes the Balloon !!

I must apologise for being such a bad blogger and also for my lack of visits to you all. The germs that I thought I'd got rid off came back with a vengeance and I've hardly touched my computer for a week.

I have a card to show you today which is a very simple design using a fabulous House Mouse decoupage from the 'Fruit and Nut' collection. I love this image and as I look at it I'm almost waiting for the little hummingbirds to pop the balloon !! I'm not sure what the background paper is as it came with a magazine. I used blue and green flowers and added punched and die-cut centres to match the blueberries and leaves in the decoupage.


I shall enter this in the following challenges
House Mouse & Friends challenge 'Wings'
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Layer it up'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Anything Goes'
Divas By Design challenge 'Anything Goes'
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Anything Goes'
The Paper Shelter challenge 'Animal Magic'
Elke Kaart Een Feestje challenge 'Use a Frame'
