Good morning all.I hope you are all well.Typing this up late as we just got home from the party.We stayed till  just before 10pm and then Jack was tired.It was my Brothers girlfriends Birthday party and it was great, apart from the Abba tribute band in the other room.I am not a fan.lol.
So on to my card for today which is a ONE LAYER CARD, i know its a shock.:D
I actually really enjoyed making this one but will need to put a panel of card in the inside to cover the ink that has gone through.I was quite impressed how the card blank held up to all my layers of ink.

2.Charisma Cardz challenge - Challenge 7 - One layer card
3.Cute Card Thursday challenge - Challenge 257 - Simplify
4.Allsorts challenge - Week 195 -Animals
5.One Stop Craft challenge - Challenge 217 - For the Kids

Products used are:
Scalloped card blank
Wild rose studio stamp - Bella with balloons
Stickles - stardust
Pro/flexmarkers
Pro/flexmarkers used are:
Ice grey 1,2,4,5,blossom,rose pink
Tulip yellow,canary,sunflower,gold
Baby pink,cocktail pink,salmon pink
