Party Animal Strikes Again

This card was for two challenges:
Heart 2 Heart's sketch challenge and
Papertake Weekly's Animal Magic

The DT's on both challenges have some amazing samples!

I just think this critter is cute and has so much potential...I can't help using her/him again!  I started this card while waiting to go pick Matthew up from work and finished it while sharing prayers and praises with a precious friend in Cyprus.  I love being connected with dear friends from different times/places in my life through facebook.

It's difficult to tell in the photo, but I used liquid glass on the balloon to make it 3D and shiny.
And below is what the card originally looked like, but I thought the buttons made it look too busy so I removed them.

Cardstock: Olive, Bamboo, Chocolate
Paper: Expedition (retired...which makes me sad)
Inks: Chocolate, Olive, Cotton Candy
Stamp Set: Party Animal (D1437)
