No Squares at Ladybug Crafts Ink

This week over at Ladybug Crafts Ink, Lyndsey said NO SQUARES... WHOOP, WHOOP - I think we all had fun with this one!

I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's balloon card - but seriously; WHY does she make everything look so stinking easy and it is so painful for me? HA!

I used a silver card stock for the front - kind of like a Mylar balloon me thinks! This is numberless Billie's Balloons - it also has a little doodle line and flower which I just cut out when I fussy cut the image.

I also fussy cut the balloons - TWICE - for lots of dimension; once from card stock, the second time from designer paper; I even paper pieced little Billie - cute eh? I thought so. I added some doodling, then added some string with modeling paste applied so I could make a couple loops in the string - also from Jennifer's video.

Hope you have some time to play along with us this week - just remember - NO SQUARES! :D Thanks for popping in; see you again soon!
