I got to play with the incredibly cute and fun Basket Animals set (as you may have seen in my sneak peek post yesterday. I made another of my Gatefold cards with a gift card pull-out (you can find a tutorial I did HERE):
I paper pieced the balloons and basket and colored both animals with Copics. The cloud is from the Lettering Delights SVG set Balloon Craze and was cut with my Zing. I then stamped the sentiment from the set on the cloud.
You may also be able to see that I made my own strings for the balloons with white Waxy Flax. The brown twine is from Trendy Twine
