Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Mikaela Titheridge

Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - The amazing Mikaela Titheridge from the United Kingdom, who is celebrating 5 years with Stampin' Up! this year.

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Mikaela's cards.

Here is the card of Mikaela's that I chose to CASE:

The Night of Navy, Pool Party, Calyso Coral and Gold colour palette used in my card comes from the current Colour INKspiration Challenge #06.

Here is my card:

I started off die cutting the clouds and smaller balloon dies using Whisper White cardstock. My larger balloon uses Night of Navy, Pool Party & Calypso Coral.

These I arranged on a piece of Whisper White and then adhered them with some liquid glue.

My sentiment is Gold heat embossed on a strip of Vellum, which I used my Simply Scored to fold the edges so they tuck under my Pool Party layer. Which is then adhered to my Night of Navy card base.

To finish off I have added a couple of randomly placed gold sequins.

Thanks so much for your support and for visiting me today :)
