Gold Balloons with Stripes

I never seem to have enough birthday cards, so I made this one , taking inspiration from some great challenges.

The elephants are a set by Mama Elephant and I coloured them with alcohol markers and the balloons in gold glitter pen. The striped paper is Echo Park and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

Oh my, those elephants are unforgettable! Love the way they are floating around with those glittery balloons on the vivid stripes. I also like the bold HB sentiment. It really carries across. Great card! Thanks so much for joining us Marina at the Watercooler Wednesday "Anything Goes" challenge this week with your delightful birthday card.

Marina, I love this card! Of course those elephants are adorable and you've coloured them beautifully. But it's the way you've used them that makes this card outstanding. Having the elephants in a "free fall", holding the gorgeous gold balloons against that bold black and white striped background is brilliant. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
