Some more sponging

Hey all, I am back again with 2 cards, I did some sponging yet again today.
 For the first one, I started with sponging the distress ink - stormy sky to the edge, and I sponged some balloons in different inks on the sky, and stamped the sentiment from Uniko Studio - simply said birthday.
Very Simple card.

Just going with some balloons, when I read the cue, 2 things came to mind - balloons & bubbles.
 I am linking this at ATSM for our challenge blog , it is our 3rd anniversary, do join us for our CAS challenge.

For the second one, I used a handmade striped stencil, and sponged with 2 inks for the front, and then I used a gold gel pen to draw lines by moving the stencil, a bit. I also added another tiny circular stamp with dots on the striped panels.
I added some doliy to the edge, and added the hand drawn and fuzzy cut tea cup. The sentiment is from Mama Elephants - water blooms.

I drew this cup using some oval stencils, and colored and fuzzy cut it to use on the card.
