Balloons and Ellie Valentine

Hiya....and another Valentine card. This image was in the UFO box, so just added some dp to a cardbase, die borders, and stamped the inside....oh yes, die cut and made a faux mat. A get 'er done.


No glossy accents added to the balloons on this card. The highlights are all created by Moi. No glare in the photo either. The tiny corner hearts are the cutouts from the border - this was an easy- peasy card to finish. I did add some Nuvo drops to the eyes, by placing a drop of the Nuvo on a scrap, then getting a bit on a straight pin and touching the eyeball. It added some spark to the eyes IRL. I always smile at this little Ellie. Hope you like it, and it makes you smile too.

Hugs & God Bless. As ever, thanks for your time to visit and leave a comment.

Darnell said...

Mary, how on earth could you leave that adorable little Ellie in your UFO box??? (Those must be some heavy balloons to almost lift her off her feet!) The black heart borders and red matting suit her perfectly! And you did a great job coloring her and glossing up her eyeballs!! Hugs, Darnell
