Love is in the Air ft. Winnie & Walter

Hello and welcome! Today I have yet another rainbow card to share with you. This card is heavily inspired by Keren's Off the Page challenge. (Shown below) 

As I was looking through my stash and searching for some inspiration, I thought: What would be more fitting than balloons to go off the page? So, tada! Here it is. The images I used on this card are mainly from Winnie & Walter's So Tweet set. 

I decided to use thin wire instead of acetate strips to support my balloons since it would look more natural. After a little research I purchased this roll of black 22 gauge wire from Amazon, and it has the exact same width as the string on the balloon image. So glad it turned out to be perfect. :) 

I also decorated my balloons with smaller images from the same set, as well as the dew drops border stamp from W&W's In Bloom: Julie's Roses set and the spark images from W&W's My Precious set. I don't use the small, complementary images very often, but I thought it was a great way to incorporate them into today's project. 

Does the pink ombre on this word die look familiar to you? Well, I used the same color combination (R20, RV32, RV34) as the one  shown in my Shine Bright Like a Diamond card. I just love this look. <3 Besides, it's the only bright color that's not included in the rainbow. I completed the sentiment by handwriting it with a white gel pen. With heart shaped balloons floating in the sky, love literally is in the air, don't you think? ;)
