Shaped girly card with balloons (All Dressed Up image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I had a challenge for a magazine of creating 7 cards with one 30x30cm sheet of patterned paper. So you may recognise this navy and teal paper in a few previous posts already. They are all very different cards so I was happy with my creations and it was less tricky than I expected. 

I used a teal pearls and beautiful Elise flowers from Flourish with a Bling, my company, click on our name to go to our store if you'd like to check them out, they come in a range of colours.

I paper pieced the little girl's hat with the paper. I did attach string to the balloons but posted the cards to the magazine before I took a new photo. The balloon die was a free one with a magazine, I love it! You can find the sweet little image at All Dressed Up.
