Up, Up & Away!

It's finally half-term...so I'm starting as I mean to go on...with a little bit of crafting! I realised that I hadn't made a birthday card in a few weeks, so made a quick one for this week's Less is More's 'Up in the Air' challenge. I stamped the cat (from the 'Hello Friend' set by Penny Black) on to the blue spotty paper (from an un-named Heidi Grace pad), then again on to white card so that I could colour the balloons and cat, cut them out and layer them over the top...thus avoiding having to cut out all of the furry edges and whiskers! The clouds were cut using a Memory Box die ('Puffy Clouds') and the sentiment is Hero Arts (from the 'Anytime Messages' set).
