Seize the Birthday June 16 NO topping!

Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!!
We do NOT have a topping this time, so ANYTHING GOES!!
We hope you will join us and please check out the awesome inspiration from the rest of the design team!

I tried this technique a while ago from Loll HERE.  She calls it splash watercolor background.  I made several papers with different colors.  I liked this red (actually distress inks:  abandoned coral and fired brick) and cut it out from an SSS balloon die.
Then I pulled out the cute Mama Elephant stamp and die set called Ella & Friends.
I just love that little "piglet" almost being taken away with the balloon!
I think the string must have come untied from Ella's tail...*wink

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a terrific weekend!!
Heart Hugs!
