Don’t you just love these adorable balloons???? I love them! Here is the card that I came up with.Balloon Animals ~ Jungle card ~ Birthday Card ~ artistry ~ embossed ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this card I punched three 1 1/2″ circles into a wood grain embossed cardstock.  I used the rock-n-roll technique with a twist on the animals.  The monkey was inked in Desert Sand then rolled in Chocolate.  I then came back with a tissue and removed a bit of the ink on the nose.  I then took a dauber with Champagne and inked the nose.  The giraffe was inked in Saffron and then rolled in Saddle.  The elephant was inked in Whisper then rolled in Slate.  I then took a tissue and removed a little of the ink in the ears, then using the dauber added a little Cotton Candy.  Then each animal was fussy cut.  The leaves are Artistry leaf #m411e88 and leaf border #m418c8f.

Here is my full list of supplies used:
