Odd Dog Balloon, Thinking of you (LOTV)

Hello!

I made this card for a friend who's just lost his father. I really didn't know what to put on a card for him, the only things that came to mind were cute characters with hearts so odd dog with heart balloon seemed to fit!



I used:

Promarkers
LOTV Up up & away papers
Mint sequins - Lucys cards
Ribbon & sentiment stamp from stash
Letracet fineliner - faux stitching
Paper pieced the balloon and added some shading






I've had a really bad few days but after a lot of extra sleep am feeling a bit better again and so glad I managed to make this card yesterday! 

Hope you're all well!

Lucy x







Challenges:


(Ribbon, image, sentiment)
(Promarkers, LOTV Papers, Cute images, Hearts)
(Sequins)
