{Basket of Smiles}

YNS Basket Animals

 This weekend I received a package of Happy Mail from Your Next Stamp! Included was the adorable set "Basket Animals" that I used to create this card. This set was designed by the talented artist Jenny Suchin. Those little animals are SO SO cute and I know I am going to be using them A LOT. I used copics and promarkers to color my fix, basket, and balloons. Next I heat embossed clear powder to give the balloons a bit of a shine. I hand stitched the borders of the grassy hill side using white DMC floss. Yeah, that took awhile but I love the way it turned out. I finished off the card with a "grass" button from A Muse Studio and bakers twine from The Twinery.  Today I am playing along with this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe:

I colored my balloons using this weeks color challenge!  I hope you are having a good week so far, and thank YOU for visiting my blog today!
