Hot Air Balloon Card

Hi, everyone!! Today I am sharing a new card I made for a one year old!! Her birthday theme is "hot air balloon".
For the balloon I used the SSS "Balloons" die. I draw lightly with a pencil curved lines, so I could divide the balloon in 3 sections. And I cut them with my scissors.
I put temporary tape on the back, placed them on my craftsheet and watercolored them with my "Zig Clean". When it dried I put "Wink of Stella" on the balloon (the third picture you can see it better).
 I also watercolored the elephant from SSS "Wild Cuddly Critters". The flag banner is from SSS "Party Banner".
For the waved basket:
-I cut strips of cardstock (distressed with "brushed corduroy").
- I placed the strips vertically on my cutting mat, and on top of the strips I put washi tape to hold them steady.
 -Then I placed the other strips, that goes horizontally,  alternating them, one above and under the vertically strips.
-I diecut the waved piece with Lawn "Stitched Square Stackables".
- I glued the waved basket on another piece of cardstock that I cut with the same die.
I love to give kids a pinwheel with the card on their birthday (W 'R Memory Keepers).

Here you can see better the glittery shine of "Wink of Stella".
