Here is the card I made:
I knew I wanted to use the Kind Koala stamp ! I love this stamp. I have used it on so many cards already.
I also knew I wanted to convert the flower into balloons. I figured he was already holding something so why not balloons??
I wasn't sure how the balloons would turn out so I did what I do best and just started. I figured paper is plentiful in my house so I could always start again if I needed to. The good news is that the balloons worked out the first time! I was shocked. Of course there are ways I could improve, but I am happy with the first attempt.
For the Koala I ended up stamping the Koala onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and fussy cutting him out. It looked better than markers and I wanted to stick with the 2013-2015 In-Colors.
This card is going to my niece at college. She is a Freshman and I hope it adds a smile to her day.
