Hola Amigo


Decisions, decisions !!
It seems likely that our stuff will have to go into storage.
That means,  I am only allowed one art box to keep with me - 
and it's filling up fast!

I made this super, quick card with a few supplies, that are so versatile,
they  will defintiely make it into the box.


On a stitched rectangle I die-cut a balloon shape. 
Then I popped a balloon, cut from my dp, back into the space,
and added the hillside border.

I die-cut my 'Amigo', coloured him with Copics and popped him up on foam pads.
I gave him a jaunty top hat and used a black fineliner to draw the balloon string.

My base card was covered with dp, and I attached the panel with foam pads.

Finally I scattered on a few sequins and gems.

Things are appearing to be moving quickly for you Caroline and all fingers crossed everything goes to plan.
Eek one box-that's like the question which ten things on a desert island could you not be without for crafting!!!(lol)

Your card is fabulous and love the little character. Try not to stress too much over it all
