Kids birthday cards - bright and blingy

For this set of cards I used a bright wavy paper and layered it onto blue card fronts along with digital images from Best Clipart.  For the left hand card I added a pale blue ribbon to which I had tied three lengths of white fiber leaving them to wave in the breeze!!  I watercoloured the balloon image to coordinate with my card, layered it onto an orange scallop circle (Nestibilities) and then adhered it to my card front over the ribbon.
For the right hand card I chose a portrait orientation and mounted my watercoloured  image over the patterned paper background.  I added some clear rhinestones to the scallops on the pink scalloped circle (Nestibillities) I layered behind the focal image.  Next I added swirls to the eye shapes on the background and added rhinestones to the ends of those as well.  I added dots to all the lines between the elements on my background as well using coordinating fine tipped markers.  Totally fun to be using some of these beautiful papers that I have been "saving"!!
