Patchwork Bunch of Balloons

Morning friends.
It's only a week, but it seems an age since I posted a card. Hope you had a lovely week and are enjoying the weekend. 

I had a wonderful day on Tuesday when 3 friends and myself went for a spa day to Centreparcs.  Unbeknown to me, Carol upgraded us, so on arrival, we had a glass of champagne followed by a light breakfast and coffee. We then spent an extremely relaxing time in the many spa rooms before lunch and more champagne. The afternoon was just as relaxing. I apologise to all who were enjoying a relaxing spa day because we did not seem to see all the signs outside the spa rooms which said Shhhh!!!  Lots of talking and laughing was just what the Dr ordered.  To just relax totally is something that doesn't  happen often enough so I will endeavour to go again in the near future. 

My card today I made for a friend who's partner is 60 today. Happy Birthday Dave.
I have used a LOTV image called Patchwork Bunch of Balloons.

The card blank is from Craftwork Cards and the papers are from Nitwit Collections. I have backe the image onto a  new favourite which is Kraft card.

I have coloured the image with Pro Markers and Flexi Markers.

The clouds are from a Memory Box die. The ribbon is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Ah Sharon, sounds like you had the perfect day relaxing! Gorgeous card, as always. I was just browsing your last couple of posts and realised the Memory Box butterfly is the one I've recently bought (my first memory box die) and I cut two for a wedding card. Once I got the 'sandwich' right they popped out beatifully. The wedding on Saturday was lovely, but silly me didn't take a photo of the card before it was delivered, oh well ......!
