Blown away

     Happy Monday my friends!  I have a Stamping Bella Uptown Girl card to share with you today.  This is "Bentley is Blown Away".  I was REALLY inspired by this amazing card from Joni Andaya so I did a bit of casing for my card.  I thought it would be a really cute layout for her flying up up and away.
     I've found myself a bit addicted to Pretty Pink Posh products lately.  I have several of their die sets, two were used on this card, and am slowly building a little sequin collection.  Like Joni I splattered my card with some watered down Distress inks.

     I coaxed my camera into capturing the lovely Wink of Stella Glitter pen I used on her dress and the balloons.  I give Joni all the design credit and I'm very happy with how it worked out for the image I used.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13
hair E53, E55, E57
dress/shoes R81, R83, R85
balloons BG11, BG13, BG49, R20, R22, R24, RV10, Y11, Y21, YR21, YR23
