Dueling Darlings Challenge

Time again for another Dueling Darlings Challenge.  This month it was LJ and Darlene coming up with a great theme.  The theme this month was "Lifts You Up".  Darlene sent me these wonderful diecuts and images that were from Stampin Up's "Life me up" set.  I wanted the large balloon to pop so I went to my distress inks and did a little watercolor for the background.  I think it really made the card pop.  The background papers are all from "Morocco" by SEI and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby (Ribbon Boutique).  The sequins are from The Paper Studio "Spare Parts".  I just love a card I can add sequins to somewhere.






Be sure and check out what some of my team mates came up with.
