MM - Embark on a new Journey...



Hello and a happy Monday to you all!  Sorry my post is late, but I had a bit of a block trying to finish my card.  I got stuck on the flowers.  Not sure yet if I like the combo or not, but will keep it for now.  I'd like to share today's FFC-MM pick now.  This week Tasha chose an adorable card.  To see what the DT chose to do with today's MM case, click HERE.  Now here is this week's pick created by Paula.


O how I wish I had that set of stamps, but it is no longer in the shop. Boo!!  Anyhoos, enough about my woes.. lol..  Isn't her card cute?!  I loved the color combo and the fun scene she created with piggy and the balloons.  Since I don't have that particular stamp I went with another one that I thought would go perfectly.  She is the elephant from the Showtime set, which is also discontinued.  Here is a close up of this cutie pie.


I wanted to keep my card in the same colors keeping the fun balloon theme was also my goal.  I had the hardest time with the cloud background.  At first I tried to color it in, but it was horrid!  So I went super easy and punched out some clouds and put them on the blue dp.  So much better.  I used black sewing thread for the strings.  There is a lot of sparkle highlighting different parts of the card, the clouds, the balloons and her bottoms.  And lastly is the fun sentiment.  I thought it was the perfect saying for this fun card. 


Alrighty, now it's your turn!  Remember in order to be eligible for the prize, a TGF image of choice, you must upload your project to the GF Gallery>Farm Fresh Challenge 2011>Mystery Monday>Paula by Sunday, 12pm CST.  The winner will be chosen at random.  So good luck and happy creating!!

Mahalo for stopping by and for your patience.  Have a wonderful Monday friends!!
Hugs,
Leanne
