oh happy day!

i always always always think of this scene from Sister Act when I hear/see/say "oh happy day"! ha ha ha!! and now it's stuck in my head all over again! :)

anyway! with that being said, today I have this FUN card up on the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog! 

i was inspired by the latest Mood Board challenge, I seriously LOVE this mood board, swoon!
have you played along yet?

everything is from the Hello Sunshine stamp set! the balloons were stamped with Word Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks using the 'rock and roll' technique. then I fussy cut them out and popped them up with foam tape!

the balloon strings and sentiment are heat embossed in black for a punch of color!

to create the background, first I mixed two little dabs of white embossing paste. one was mixed with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink and the other was mixed with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink. once they were mixed well, I used my craft knife and spread the colors directly onto my cardfront. no stencil used!! I even mixed the two colors together a little. LOVE the way the sky looks in real life! it has dimension and texure, which makes it different from ink blending!

anyway, be sure to check my card out on the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog and play along with the latest challenge! :)
