Your Love Lifts Me Up for Just Us Girls Challenge #233

Love the inspiration photo at JUGS this week.  I was going through my stamps and found this Close To My Heart set, Lifting Spirits.  It had this air balloon in it - perfect  for the challenge.   I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with Promarkers, fussy cut it out and mounted it with foam dimensionals.  I used some SU Bashful Blue ink and my brayer to ink up the flat side of the Darice Clouds EF and ran it through my Big Shot with MFT Smooth White CS, love how it turned out.  The sentiment is from Heart Benton from Inky Antics, stamped in SU Brilliant Blue ink and cut out with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax and Fishtail Flags Layers Stax Die-namics.   I added two enamel dots from MME Now and Then collection.  The blue and yellow CS is from Recollections.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
Happy Stamping,
