Card for Ava

Ok, I've calmed down enough to post today's card which is for my niece Ava who is 2 tomorrow. I immediately thought of this LOTV stamp - bears and balloons - what more could a little girl want? I'm not overly happy with the photo, there is quite a lot of glitter on there although it doesn't show up well. For my birthday I have asked for a light box, lights  and mini tripod in the hopes that it will improve my photo taking, watch this space!!

Image - 'Patchwork Bunch of Balloons' - LOTV coloured with Promarkers
Blue card - Coredinations Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection

Bear buttons - Local knitting shop
Ribbon - Hobbycraft
Dies & Punches used - Spellbinders - 'Classic Circles', 'Scalloped Circles', 'Classic Ovals' and Tag and Cheery Lynn - 'Exotic Butterfly Small' and Fiskars Daisy Border Punch
I coloured some peel offs with promarkers for the name and number 2 and then added some Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles 'Angel Whispers' to them as well as the patches in the balloons and all the flower centres on the paper.
