Birthday Balloon Girl (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Happy Australia Day! It is our national day of celebrating our wonderful country today and I must say, I'm pretty happy to be an Aussie.

I have created 2 really girly cards with the same Kaisercraft papers but still very different designs I think. This one is using a gorgeous image from Saturated Canary. I added a little doodling around the image, kind of like a balloon string. I have used this image before so have a photo of it below.

I have also used some rhinestones and teal pearls from Flourish with a Bling, see below for our sale. The Aussie dollar is really low at the moment so if you're overseas its a perfect time to buy our products as they are also 50% off this week. 

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout January, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!
