Balloon Love

Hey, here is a card I made with a free stamp I won at a show :) It also matches the DRS Designs challenge which is balloons.
I stamped the gorjuss image and coloured it using my promarkers. I kept the colour scheme to blue as this is one of my favourite colours. I cut the image into an oval, sanded the edge and inked it blue. I then cut a blue spotty paper for the backing of my card and inked the edge dark blue.
I then embossed a piece of dark blue card with a circles embossing folder. I then backed this with silver card and sanded the edge of both before inking them blue. I attached my image and then made a blue bow for the bottom right hand corner. I added a 'With Love to You' sentiment backed with pale blue and raised this up in the top left corner. To finish, I added four silver circle embellishments with blue star card candy in the centre of two of the circles.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
drs designs blog - balloons
twisted tuesday challenges - are you blue
my heart pieces digital stamp challenge - fav colour
deep ocean challenge - deep blue
charisma cardz - monochrome
sir stampalot challenge - Take flight
