Tilda with Balloons or is it Buttons

This card was made for Magnolia Down Under Challenge # 23  Buttons

I wanted to use BUTTONS as my feature, & what better way than with Balloons. I cut Tilda’s Thumb to hold the threads for the balloon strings. Cut the card shape out with my Cricut Expression and embossed the background. Machine stitched the design paper to give a little texture. Tilda was cut twice, and popped up for dimension, masking the existing balloons.

A huge thank you to Sharon Caudle (Gramma's House of Cards) & Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. Sharon was kind enough to share this card shape. Sharon designed this with Design Studio for the Cricut Die Cutting Machine. Sharon’s work is amazing, stop by her blog and see for yourself and say hi!!
