As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been joining in with ATDML cybercrop this weekend. I made this card for the Up challenge - make a card using a balloon or a house. ( Can you see which I've used?!)

I used a Sizzix balloon die, a magazine freebie text stamp and a heat embossing resist technique.

I'd like to enter :
Mod Squad  heat embossing
Little Tangles  birthday
As you See it  celebrate

This is the final layout I made for the cybercrop.
One-layer-cards are the big thing in cardmaking at the mo, and, inspired by one of the cybercrop class layouts, I thought I’d try a one-layer layout. The gridlines, flowers, butterflies and ‘wonderful day’banner were already printed on the paper . ( Grace Taylor) . Using black pen, stamps and a grey marker, I added frames, stitching, splatters, shading and the arrow and ‘a good day’.

I made LOs before I started making cards. Now I'm struggling with the large spaces as well as the smaller ones, like tags. Your LO is beautiful, and your balloon card is full of party feel.
