HOORAY, it's MARVELOUS MONDAY, the start of a new week, new adventures and the last week of summer before my kids head back to school - woo hoo!!  It also means that there's a MARVELOUS image at SHELLY'S IMAGES SHOP that's on sale TODAY ONLY!!  So, hurry, click on the above link and get your MARVELOUS MONDAY image for today's SPECIAL PRICE.  The image is Balloons and they are so versatile!!
You get the "Happy" and you can add whatever you want - Birthday, Anniversary, Hello, etc.
Here's my card:
I made it into a Birthday card because you can never have too many birthday cards, right?!?  I hope you like it and that you will head over to SHELLY'S IMAGES SHOP to pick up the image!  For my card I colored the image with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut out using nesties.  I daubed the edges with SU melon mambo and then went over the balloons with crystal Stickles.  It really helps bring out the different colors in the balloons.  I used the bottom part of a Northwoods Sentiment stamp that I stamped in SU melon mambo and cut with nesties.  I also used Doodlebug Designs buttons, Denami Designs ribbon, SEI DP and SU pumpkin pie CS that I embossed with Cuttlebug folder.  Base of card is SU tempting turquoise.  I hope you like it!!:)
