Artisan Monday...
Happy Monday everyone! I'm back in the swing of things! We had a great vacation in Montana visiting family. We saw some really beautiful scenery and I got LOTS of pictures! My 16 year old, Mikayla, stayed behind in Montana to visit with Grandma and Great-Grandma and help out in my parents' restaurant and farm land (cows, hay and garden) for a couple months. My 20 year old came back with us but went to her home the next day... Mike and I are temporary empty-nesters... it's an odd feeling to be sure. But I can say things stay so clean around here and the kitchen counters stay free of dishes and I have so much time on my hands. Lol!

Anyway.... on to the card!
I really love the new Gorgeous Grape color. I decided to make a clean card using just Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White.
I didn't have the balloon punch, so each balloon is cut out by hand... reminiscent of old times when we didn't have coordinating punches...
...I think I'll obtain that punch now. Hahaha!
The back layer of balloons is glued down, the second layer is 1 dimensional, and the front balloons are up on 2 dimensionals to add depth... although you can't really see it straight on. But it's there!
Anyway.... ENJOY YOUR DAY!!
