Glittery balloons

Hello blogger friends, I am up with a one layer card this morning. The weather is really gloomy, wet with grey skies, but I am sharing a contrasting card. This card was made yesterday, and I am glad that I clicked the picture yesterday, as today, I won't be able to take any good pictures unless the lighting improves...I click pictures in natural light only.

I started with sponging the sky, and then stenciled the clouds in using the same ink. I then used my double sided technique to add glitter. SInce I wanted my card to be one layer, I folded in the doulble sided tape so that it sticks to itself, and then punched the balloons and peeled off one side to add it to the card, and peeled off the top side one by one to add glitter. I had used purple, shades of blue and silver glitter here, the sentiment is from Waffle Flower. A few rhine stones, and doodled the strings to finish off.
