Balloon Bear

Good Evening Folks!
Hope your weekend is going well!! I don't seem to have achieved that much today but I did finish this little card using a vintage Forever Friends stamp that I found lurking in a box in my room - really one day I will be properly organised and ultra tidy with everything in it's place - yeah I know the Flying Pig just went past!! Anyway, here she is looking really cute and bashful! The papers are from my scraps collection, a mixture of DCWV and papermania I think??

Here's a closer look:

I followed this great sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday as my inspiration:

and also the picture inspiration over at The Cutie Pie challenge:
