CARD BASE: Tip-Top Taupe card stock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". A layer of Pool Party card stock was added. The banner was cut out of the retired Cherry on Top dsp using the Banners Framelits and added to the Pool Party layer.
IMAGE: Stamped the image from the Bella and Friends stamp set on Whisper White Heavy card stock with Memento Ink. I colored the image using a Blender Pen and Tip-Top Taupe, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Cucumber Crush inks. The Tip-Top Taupe Marker was used to darken around the edges of the puppy. The image was cut out using the Layering Squares Framelits. A Crushed Curry mat was cut out with a scallop square from the same framelits and attached to the image. The balloon image from the Balloon Celebration stamp set was stamped on Cucumber Crush card stock with Cucumber Crush ink and punched out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. I added it to the image layer and popped it all up with Dimensionals. Clear Wink of Stella was used to add some shimmer to the balloon.
SENTIMENT: The sentiment is from the Best Birds stamp set and stamped using Memento ink. A couple of Crushed Curry retired It's My Party Enamel Dots were added next to the sentiment.
