A bit of a mish mash

I say a bit of a mish mash because the balloons and the elephant were die cuts given to me by a friend in 2006 - the bakers twine , the rainbow stickers and the glitter embossing powder all came from different challenge wins.
Sadly I only had red balloons which I coloured white and then heat  embossed with the lilac which came out darker than I was expecting - on reflection I should have covered the balloons with glue and sprinkled white glitter on them.

UnstampaBelles - It's the day to play along at challenge 34 - Incorporate an animal or a bird  - option to use pastel colours - I think I was doing OK until the balloons -  a bit too dark .

No, the balloons are fine! What a great card - pretty, useful AND it uses up the stash! Thanks Gail for entering Unstampabelles' current challenge!
