MFT Card Design Superstar Entry


I'm entering the MFT Card Design Superstar challenge with this card. I won't go all philosophical about being a superstar - I suspect that we all have days where we feel like superstars and days where we don't! lol!


Card Design Superstar

This idea came to me while I was away last weekend with my daughter. It came fully formed and I don't think I've seen it anywhere. That's a rare occurrence for me! And in the end, I think its whimsical and fun!

I used
London Mouse - houses, clouds and mice
Things With Wings - sentiments - I cut up two of them and placed them on either side of the mice for balance.
Blueprints 25 - card panel
Blueprints 26 - balloon, balloon string and bow. I created stencils and sponged the balloon and string to keep the panel flat for my mice.

You are a superstar to me Ardyth! This is so fun and whimsical and I am laughing our loud thinking of the Queens' Guards floating up in the air with a balloon and they can't scream for help because they are on duty!

This is so much fun and well designed, Ardyth. I say that knowing that everything you do is 'well designed' but I wanted to stress the point. Superstar quality all the way.
