Moving Forward Stamping 411 Challenge Card

Hi stamping bleeps, oh wow it is a hot one up here. I wish I was flying in here to cool off today. I stamped this card for the Stamping 411 challenge so I hope I did it right. I am challenge happy lately, aren't I? LOL! I love these challenges that help you lay out your card though. I went to prayer group and then church this morning and came home and shut up my house. It is hot and muggy and I was sitting here falling asleep so just made a cup of Joe on my Kuerig. It is sunny but HOT!!!! 

On my card I used the Ronald McDonald set that is a great set that SU donates $3.00 of every set sold to the RM house. If you have ever been where you need housing when someone is sick they are so great to be around to help. So if you don't have this set I hope my card inspires you to buy it. I used Island Indigo and the the Summer Smooches DSP again to make this card. I stamped the image without the words to make my card. I used the Labels Collection Framelits on the Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. I stamped the image in Island Indigo and then I used my marker to color in some of the pennants. I textured the Daffodil Delights Card Stock with the Perfect Polka Dots to mimic the DSP. The piece of Island Indigo Card Stock was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Then I tied the Bakers Twine around it and used the ticket punch stamped with the Occasions Alphabet on it. I took the Color Spritzing Tool and spritzed the card and it almost looks like the balloon is heading into a storm, doesn't it? LOL!  

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Moving Forward, Occasions Alphabet
Card Stock and DSP: Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Summer Smooches DSP 
Inks: Island Indigo Ink Pad and Marker
