Would you believe, this was supposed to be a Father's Day card? Yes, really. When I was a child, growing up in a commie country, we didn't really celebrate Father's Day. Or Mother's day, for that matter. But at least Mums had the Internation Women's Day on March 8. One year I felt bad and made a card for my Dad as well, urging him to celebrate his IWD (not really clocking what the W stood for). Yeah, I know... bless...
Anyway, my Dad is gone now and I think of him often and wish I could let him know I loved him one more time. When I saw the challenge I had this vision of a balloon carrying a heart up & away in the sky. And it felt just right to make a simple, clean card, with my daddy in my mind.
Well, it all went fine until I put the card together and the balloon wasn't popping up the way I wished it to pop and there was a tiny bit of white base shining through next to a rope (which it shouldn't) and then I tried to make it better and made a smudge on the balloon and then I had to put the little heart over it to cover it and BOOM! it wasn't a card for my dad anymore.
But the balloon still wasn't popping so, no longer having my dad in my mind, I coloured the balloon with one of my pink blends and voila! A pretty, not a Father's Day card has been born.
What Product I Used to Make this Card?
