Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 4

Hello there again! 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my brother celebrating his graduation from Pharmacy School. I also submitted this card for Lawn Fawnatics challenge #4 titled: "Black, White and Bright". The challenge is to do a black and white card with a pop of color. 

Here's a look at the card I made:

For the front of the card, I used Lawn Fawn's "Let's Polka in the Meadow" petite paper pack, the black and white hearts patterned paper. 

I then stamped a hot air balloon from Lawn Fawn's "Blue Skies" stamp set with Archival black ink on a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. I used this paper because it blends the "Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens" beautifully. I colored the image in bright rainbow colors. I added some shimmer with a Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen.   

I used the coordinating die to cut the image. I added a graduation cap from Sunny Studio Stamps called "Woo Hoo". Here is a close up of the hot air balloon with the graduation cap. You can see the beautiful shimmer. 

I adhered the balloon with some foam tape to add some dimension. 

To finish the card, I used a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's "Blue Skies" stamp set and added it to the top of the card. At the bottom of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's "Happy, Happy, Happy" stamp set. 

I hope you liked today's card. If you liked my card or have any questions, please leave a comment below. 

See you next time!
