Up In The Air…….


I kind of feel like my life has been Up In The Air. (pun totally intended) We had friends visiting for the weekend, to help me pull off a surprise Birthday party for my husband who turns 60 later this month. We managed to completely surprise him and had a fabulous time. Then, as you know Sunday morning I found out I had been accepted onto the Papercraft Business Challenge Design Team! 

While I am not officially your inspiration for this Month’s Challenge, I was asked to make a card for this Month’s theme! I have been sitting on this adorable stamp set from Mama Elephant called Flying With Friends.  Which also happens to be on sale right now.  
Mama Elephant has some super fun sets, 
that just beg to be colored!
I was so bummed to find out that awesome gingham paper from My Favorite Things called Gingham Galore is no longer available. 😠 I guess I have been hoarding it a little too long.

My clouds were all die cut from Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White card stock. It brings just a hint of sparkle. 

I have been working on controlling my stipple technique. Do any of you have trouble with it? I really struggle with getting them a consistent size and not too blobby! But hey, that is why we practice.  What technique do you need to practice? 

I finished off by adding some light blue dew drops to my clouds. I have a huge love affair with dew drops. What embellishment is your go to?

I hope you enjoyed my card. Did it give you inspiration to pop over the Papercraft Business Challenge page and play along? Did I mention that you might just win some Magnolia Dragonfly Doohickeys?
