It's all in the numbers

It's the 100th Challenge over at Our Craft Lounge, so the theme is to include numbers on your project. I had the perfect papers from a KI Memories set that I've been itching to use, which went great with my favorite Tiddly Inks sets, Whaz Up or Down, which I always have to color like my dogs, Walt & Allen. I also always have to add Polar White FlowerSoft to "Allen" and black OCL Sparkly Fluff to "Walt"!

This is my first time coloring transparent balloons with my Copics, but thanks to a YouTube video I really like the result!

The sentiments are heat-embossed in light blue, and are from a set that I've had for years...it was one of the first stamp sets my mom gave me, way before I was even into cardmaking, so it definitely qualifies this for the Shopping Our Stash Challenge! This week's theme is "Borders", and although it's a little difficult to see (click image to enlarge) I spent a lot of time on the central border. The presents are a strip from one of the pieces from the KI Memories set; I added orange ribbon to the top & bottom of the strip, and hand-sewed a zig-zag border in bakers twine on the bottom.

Inspiration:
Sketch Saturday Week #190
Tiddly Inks Challenge #78: green, yellow, orange, blue (+ use Tiddly Inks image)
Shopping Our Stash Challenge 35: create a border detail

Here's Walt with the card:

I wanted to get both of my boys in the photo, and this is the best I could do:
Have a great day everyone!
