Sunday with High Hopes

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend!  I am upstate hiking and enjoying a little R&R with the family!  Today our hostess for High Hopes challenge #78  is Karen and the theme is “It’s a Party”-so come on everyone and make a birthday or party themed card!

I love this fish in the balloon image!  I stamped it on vellum and colored the back side of the paper with Copics then cut it out.  I used a balloon punch to create two additional balloons and then drew in the strings.  I used some patterned paper from DCVW The Sweet Stack and Bazzill solid cardstock for matting and the card base.  I just added a ribbon and the sentiment and some random Stickles for a bit of sparkle! 

Come over to High Hopes and play along and check out all the fantastic samples the DT has to share!  You can find High Hopes stamps at these fine stores!!
