Day 179: Thanks for the Lift Card

Tonight I wanted to do something for the Freshly Made #200 sketch challenge. The sketch is so open ended that I literally stared blankly into space for quite some time.  Finally I decided I had to use what was already on my desk and just start!
I stamped the top of my white cs panel with the THANKS sentiment from the August SOTM in Glacier Ink. Then I added a panel of the green dot pattern from Zoe. I crossed that with a strip of my new Love My Tapes cloud washi. 
I stamped the balloon directly onto the card, then again onto some scrap cardstock. I used my water brush to blend Glacier, Sorbet, and Canary ink across the balloon, basket, hearts, and teensy flag. Then I trimmed out the bits I wanted and attached them to the image stamped onto the card base. I added a canary water colored sentiment flag. Finally I added some touches of shimmer gel pen along the edges of the balloon, as dots in the panels of the balloon, and along the edges of the sentiment banner. The stamp set is Lifting Spirits, and I'm so bummed that it's retiring at the end of this month
