It's April...bring out the balloons

Good morning bloggers and a happy April month to you all,
I am sure all  my Northern Hemisphere friends are enjoying some spring weather, if not yet, I hope it won't be far away. For us in the South, lovely crisp autumn mornings and not excessively hot....I love this season. Seeing the leaves change reminds me that soon the trees will be bare and winter will be here.

Today is another  colour challenge day at The Outlawz. Roxann has chosen this beautiful inspirational photo with the colours and the "April Action" twist ...add balloons.


We are also lucky to have as our sponsor this month PENNY one of our own DT

I do hope you will pop over and see the lovely cards made by the ladies and come and join in the fun bringing your balloon cards to show us.

For my card I used an image that I have had for a number of years...dug it out of the archives. This digi has always been popular for kiddies birthdays.

 
 
My card recipe:
Paper - Patterned paper from a no name paper pad.
Green embossed card.
Image - Priscilla Styles, coloured with distress inks and the balloons with Twinkling H20's
Sentiment - peel offs
Added a balloon button and some bakers twine.
 
Will enter the following challenges.
