Today I am back sharing a card using some of the new Penny Black products from their latest release Bring on the Happy.

I have created a fun scene using the Live it Up! stamp set and paired it with a sentiment from the Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set. I coloured in the balloons with Copics and added some clear Wink of Stella glitter pen for some subtle shine. I masked off a circle and blended in some Salty Ocean distress ink to create the sky.
