Green is the color

Happy Monday everyone. I am sharing 2 cards in this post, as I have quite few cards which are sitting on my desk to be shared. I have another scheduled post for later today as one of the guest designer. I don't want to flood my blog with too many posts in a day.
The first one up is inspired by the Muse.
I had used the stamping up inks marina mist and wild wasabi for inking. Then I punched out the balloons and added those with a sewing floss using foam adhesive.
The elephant is a tiny rubber stamp, which I purchased locally here.
The sentiment is from 2 different brands, "Happy" is from hero Arts - sketched letters, and the remainder is from Uniko Studio. A few rhine stones to finish off.

 Both the sentiment parts are stamped in black and embossed using clear EP.

 Linking this with:

Muse - I was inspired by the inking, balloons, and the birthday theme.

I have used rainbow colors for the balloons

Rainbows and clouds

balloons in rainbow shades, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts

The card is made using a paper bag, I made last year also, but is different from the previous one.
 I first used the top part  of the paper and cut it in a strip with the design on, and glue to the card stock, then glued the remaining design part.
Then I used Tim Holtz burlap stencil and sponged randomly using wild wasabi and so saffron inks.
Since there is a trail of sentiment  on the paper bag already, I decided to add a obold on efrom Uniko Studio. A few matching sequins to finish off.

 The paper bag I used for this card.
