Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 262

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 262
- for a child -

Here's my card for the design team.

I want to thank S 'n S for sponsoring this challenge. I had fun making this card. I took the ice cream cone digi and printed it out 5x, at different sizes. Then I colored them, with Copics, and cut them out. I used green and blue cardstock to create my scene of grass and sky. I added a couple of die cut clouds. The digi sentiment helped me make my sign. Then  I used a piece of brown cardstock, run through a wood embossing folder for the post. I edged the sign with a Copic marker and raised it using mounting tape. Waxy flax was used for my strings for my cone balloons. Once I assembled the card I use crystal lacquer on the cones for the glossy balloon effect.

Our sponsor for this challenge is
Sweet 'n Sassy

Still time to get involved with the current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.
