Less is More #313


I am back today with our next challenge over at Less is More - it is a fun one this week.  We are asking you to use one or more balloon on your design.

Here is what I came up with:

I used a Mama Elephant sentiment with this cute elephant image from WPlus9 which I coloured with Zig watercolour markers.  Some stripy washi tape at the top and bottom of the card add interest.
I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is 'Anything Goes'.

I created a cloudy background and used one of my favourite Mama Elephant images.  I cut out and popped up the pastel coloured balloons for added dimension.
I will link up at the Anything Goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps too!
I hope you like my balloon cards.  The DT have lots more ideas to share with you over at Less is More
See you again soon!

  1. A gorgeous duet of cards Sarah! The beautiful, delicate pastel shades on your second card are so dreamy and I am really envious of your talent at creating those incredible clouds. I had to smile at your little Nellie because it looks just like it wants to play with you - and maybe run off with the balloon so you chase it. Fab washi tape! Have a super week xx

  2. Oh how I need some ellie images in my life, that's definitely what's missing from my stash! How adorable is that little one?! Love the stripey washi, a great touch. And wow, love how you've coloured those pastel balloons and the clouds look fabulous xx

  3. These are so cute! Beautiful cards.

  4. Looks like a wonderful Mama Elephant week for you Sarah and I had hoped to use the Mama Elephant greeting set too ... until I saw you and Esther had both used it so brilliant! Both cards are so fabulous, gorgeous colouring and your designs are always so unique and perfect! Hope you're having a good weekend. x

  5. Ha Ha! Great minds think alike! I used the same elephant on my card! I really love that big bold sentiment too! The fox with the bouquet of balloons is just too cute! Love both cards, Sarah!

  6. Love these two cute card! This little guys are so cute and your cards are super fun!

  7. Oh, I love these! The little elephant is so cute, and the fox floating away with their balloons is just adorable! The little touches are great too, like the stripey patterned paper and the inked clouds. Fabulous! Hope you're having a good weekend x

  8. Both cards are so cute, Sarah. I might have used the elephant too but I'll have to come up with something else.

  9. Beautiful and cute cards Sarah ! I love the CAS design of your first card ! Your colouring is perfect, we can clearly see the light coming from the right ! And I love your final touch with the stripy washi tape ! Your little fox is also adorable and I love the dimension you gave with your cloudy background and the balloons mounted with foam ! Fabulous !
