It's all in the details...

I promised I'd post more Kitty Bee Designs and so here it is...

I'm also entering this in CAS-ual Fridays: Long and Short challenge so the dimension of the card is 9.5inx4in to fit in a legal size envelope for mailing!

I got my color and theme from Pinspired Challenge #2

I noticed the scarf blowing in the wind and hearts on the mittens so went with using an outdoorsy feel.  This card has a lot of details so I took a few more close up pics to capture it!

This adorable elephant makes me smile with the little flower in her ear.  I punched out the flower and put a little rhinestone for sparkle and dimension.  I wanted her to have a little pedicure too so colored her nails with copics and put a coat of glossy accents!  The grass is simply made from cutting strips of green cardstock and going at it like a hairstylist...hehehe.  I wish I had one of those grass cutting border punches, but until then I think it works.  The cute little Sakura flowers are also from Kitty Bee Designs that were colored with copics and fussy cut.  Of course for more glitter, added Stickles in Crystal. 

The clouds are also Kitty Bee Designs (actually a popcorn shape) colored with this really cool Marvy Uchida snow marker that puffs up when using a heating feels soft and puffy!  I wanted the heart balloon to be puffy as well so waited patiently for the glossy accents to dry before completing my card.

I wanted to use something other than bakers twine for the elephant to hold the balloon and went with some jewelry wire from my stash.  Thought that represented the mitten strings pretty well.  As the sentiment (from Stamps of Life) states..."I {heart} YOU" for stopping by!
