Let's Celebrate!

 Hi crafting friends,

I hope you all had a great weekend and managed to get some crafting done. Today is my DT day over at Whimsie Doodles and for my card I chose the very cute Balloon Lizzie.

I coloured this cutie with my copics and fuzzy cut her out.  As usual I coloured her first without picking my paper and then couldn't find the right papers in my very large stash so I decided to create my own background.  How is it that with my masses of paper both 'real' and digital I can never find what I want?!  For the background I used MFT starry night stencil and my copics.  I realised half way through that I had not used the correct cardstock so my copics bled some - whoops!  Oh well, I like to call it the handmade touch!!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
That's it from me today.  Take care and I hope to see you soon.
