Soft and Dreamy with AE and Curtain Call

Good morning! I managed to sneak in a card for a couple more challenges yesterday - and I LOVE how soft and dreamy this one came out!

The first challenge was the August Avery Elle Sketch Challenge - I pretty much followed the sketch exactly, just elongated it to a vertical design instead of horizontal:
The next challenge was the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - balloon animals always make me think of the fair - and I loved the soft dreamy colors in this inspiration photo:

I used lots of pretty papers from Crate Paper's 6x6 DIY shop paper pad - one of my fav collections ever! I matted each layer with Avery Elle kraft cardstock, which I also used for my cardbase.

I stamped the balloon animal from Party Animal on my pattern paper with soft MFT ink - again, loving that soft dreamy look! The sentiment is from Handwritten Notes stamped with MFT kraft ink.

I added some ivory jute twine, and a few Winter Blend sequins for embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by this morning! Have a great day!!!
