Love this card, and the color scheme you picked. What a fun idea for the first challenge. No excuse for me not to play, right? I see you got those awesome balloons. They look great with those PTI 'strings'.

I love both cards, but the balloons are especially cute! The polka dot washi is so fun peeking out at the top. Such a great sketch, I'll have to give it a try when I get home. :)
