December Birthday

I created this card for last week's bella colour challenge (BCC57). How many people in your life have birthdays in December—thought this was perfect for my niece Michaela who celebrated hers on Sunday because it combines winter with pink and balloons. I used my SU watercolour wonder crayons to colour bella; paper pieced her balloons to tie in with the K&Co Peppermint Twist paper in the background; and debossed the image with a scalloped edged rectangular nestie. The layered flower and cuttlebug snowflake cover up a little mistake. TFL!

Stamps: balloonabella, Stamping Bella
Ink: Staz On in timber brown; SU ballet blue (sponging along the edge); SU stampin' write marker in ballet blue (bows)
Paper: SU ballet blue; watercolour paper (unknown); Brenda Walton 'Peppermint Twist' deluxe specialty paper pad, K & Co.
Other: rectangle scallop nestabilities, SU fresh favourites II eyelets; sponge; cuttlebug snowflake die; SU watercolour wonder crayons; aquapainter; embossing folder; stickles in waterfall
