Good morning all, own up who stole my post? It was all written and scheduled, this morning it hadn't posted and was completely gone!

Anyhow here is what I created for the challenge of 'Faux Stitching', stitching is something that can be done in a couple of different ways either like I did with cutting the stitches or by using a pen and drawing the stitches. This card was super quick to make in fact I made it in under ten minutes the time my daughter in law had to get it in the post for her nephew whose birthday she had forgotten lol. The white layer is popped up with one balloon cut out to reveal the blue one below. The other balloons are a deep red and the belated is actually brown but the sheen on it doesn't help.
