Just for You - a card for Pops

hello friends and fellow bloggers.
wow its Wednesday again. I cannot believe how fast these weeks are going. Honestly you would think I had nothing better to do than complain about the days going fast!!
hope you are all well and enjoying (hopefully) the sunshine wherever you are in the world.
Its sunny here today and although I don't sunbathe I like it when its sunny cos people seem happier!!

anyway here's to today's card.  This is a card I made for the very talented Pops who had a draw on her blog to win a fabulous Lily of the Valley stamp. The card I have made is a thank you to her for picking me and to show off the stamp that I won in the draw. 

The image is a LOTV stamp - its called Patchwork Hot Air Balloon.I coloured  the bear in as always with my copics. Took me a few goes to get the shading right as I wanted to show Pops my colouring in!! LOL not that she has anything to worry about!!

I added some pearls to the spotty section of the balloon. The section next to it to the left has glittered stripes. I did a bubble effect (as taught by hubby! LOL) behind the image for effect. I used a Pink Petticoat digi paper called fluffy clouds.  

The pink paper was from my stash. The wording I did on the PC using a Havix font. Ribbon from stash with a hand tied bow!! ooh get me! My first proper go with a hand tied bow. I was very pleased with my effort!
Gems added for a bit of bling.
Thanks for dropping by and I will let you know hopefully what Pops thought of her card.  I do hope Pops likes it. 

any comments would be much appreciated!

love and hugs until next time.
