Summer’s finally here {Mo’s Dream Team}

Hi. Another Wednesday, and another Mo day for me. Today I’ve got a bright, cheerful, summery card featuring Angelina’s Balloons. Winter lasted forever this year, so I’m very excited about the fact that summer finally seems to have arrived. In fact, there were still a couple of patches of snow on the ground on Sunday, and last night my home town of Oslo was one of the warmest cities worldwide I have listed on my weather app on my phone. The only place that was warmer was New York City. This was around 11 pm CEST, which is only 5 pm in New York, so no wonder it was warmer there.

Back to the card. I colored up my image with Copics and added some grass and a few freehand flowers to ground her. I added tons of Glossy Accents to the balloons, making them super shiny.

I like making my cards simple, so I put her on a standard A2 sized card base made from Raspberry Fizz cardstock from Papertrey Ink, before adding a scrap of a tiny Doodlebug doily, a couple of strips of patterned paper from Maja Design and Papirdesign diecut with dies from My Favorite Things and a couple of tiny staples.

The sentiment is from a stamp set from Norsk Stempelblad AS, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. I added a couple of enamel dots, the pink ones are from Papirdesign, the teal from My Mind’s Eye. I added some divine twine and tied it in a bow as my last finishing touch. And that’s my card for today.
