Congratulations Balloon Card - MCT Thoughtful Thursday

It's Thoughtful Thursday with My Creative Time, and today I had fun making a congratulations card for a friend who just won a big award!  I started this card by taking a panel of watercolor cardstock and ink blending some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass in the center of it.  After spritzing it with water, I flicked on droplets of Mermaid Lagoon and Ground Espresso inks that I had mixed with water.  After this dried, I stamped on my sentiment ballon string, from the Script Words stamp set.  I made my balloon with the smallest of the Stitched Circle Balloon Dies, ink blending it with Mermaid Lagoon ink.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and others from the design team have for you today!
