You’re Destined for Greatness, Michelle!!

youredestined

Good morning!!  Today’s card is a special little homage to my dear blog buddy, Michelle Woerner of Stop and Stamp the Roses.  Michelle and I met through Verve Stamps…I was a big fan and she was a longtime Diva :)  She is just the sweetest woman and was (is still!) always encouraging and cheering me on my own card making road.  Michelle has a LONG list of accomplishments and Design Team success.  She recently joined the Spellbinder Design Team and is already wowing us all!!  It’s a little bittersweet for me, though, as we hardly had any time to be Verve Divas together.

So with Michelle in mind AND the In My Beautiful Balloon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, I created this fun little card :)  I saw this TUTORIAL a long while ago on Lauren Meader’s blog.  She created these fun little 3D balloons and I wanted to try them out too :)  Here’s more of a side view to show off the dimension.

dimension 

The smaller circle balloon was easy to create with my 1 1/4 inch punch, but the larger oval one was a bit tricky at first.  My oval nestabilities were either too small or too big for the balloon.  Then EUREKA!!  I remembered my Verve Embossed Oval die…it’s the perfect shape and size!!!  Some fun glitter clouds and a heartfelt sentiment PLUS a beautiful bow (just like Michelle!!) and this card was done :)  Thanks so much for visiting and Michelle, congrats girlie!!  You really are destined for more wonderful things…I just know it!!  {{HUGS}}
