*****And now on to the show!*****

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):

AnimalBasket2a
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

Here's a shot so you can see the gift card pulled out and also that the right panel opens for you to write a message to the recipient:

I hope you liked my project and thanks for hopping along with us! Your next stop is the incredibly talented guest designer Veronica.
