Hello and welcome to another card posting. Today I wanted to feature the Lift Me Up bundle and make it more masculine but I think this card can be used for a boy or a girl, big or small. I also needed some birds so I used the High Tide stamp set that worked perfectly. Just a add a little sparkle to the main image with Wink of Stella, sponge3 the edges of the background and the sentiment and then sprinkle with some enamel shapes. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Additional supplies: ATG, clear blocks, Scotch 3M foam tape

2. Cut a Whisper White panel slightly smaller than the card base. Sponge the edges.

3. Mask the clouds over the Whisper White panel, let dry and then stamp the birds randomly.

4. On scrap paper, stamp the hot air balloons and then die-cut with coordinating thinlits. Pop the stamped images up with foam tape and adhere to the background piece.
