Sending Smiles

The latest Freshly Made Sketch challenge caught my eye.  I wanted to make something simple, plus I had several white circles in my scrap drawer left over from making several bee cards earlier this month.  I pulled out this cute Up and Away stamp set by Mama Elephant, because the pretty blue striped paper reminded me of the sky.

I used Copic markers to color the bunny and balloons.  Part of me is seriously tempted to add glitter to those balloons.  lol  I shaded the clouds with just a touch of grey, although I think it's difficult to see in the picture.  According to the sketch, the sentiment strip is supposed to be on the circle, but it didn't work for my design, so I just moved it lower.  I put a cloud in its place instead.  After all, my little bunny is floating in the sky!
