Pollycraft Challenge #100!!!

Good morning!  Today is my very first challenge post as a designer for Pollycraft Stamps and it's an awesome challenge week to be joining the team!  This is the 100th Pollycraft challenge at the Pollycraft Monday Challenge blog and Paula has an awesome prize lined up for the challenge winner this week!

Here is a pic of the prize package:

But here's the best part... Paula is also throwing in a CD of 100 Pollycraft digital images!!!

So what are you waiting for? The theme this week is Celebrations with and optional theme of Stars and Stripes...   head over to the Challenge blog to check out all the awesome cards from the DT!

Here is my card using the sweet Cuthbert Balloons:

The papers I have used are mainly from Crate Paper and October Afternoon and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I have coloured Cuthbert with copics (see details below) and added Stickles to the heart on his shirt and Glossy Accents to the balloons.  The Go Wild sentiment is from Pollycraft.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenges - Must use a ribbon somewhere
Allsorts Challenge Blog - Free and Easy July - Anything Goes

Now, are you still with me?  If you are that's great... because Paula has given me (and all the other DT members) the digi stamp we used on our cards to give away to one lucky commenter!   So, if you leave a comment below (and a way to contact you) you could win Cuthbert Balloons.

Here is a close up of Cuthbert:

And these are the copics I used:

Happy Monday!

I love the papers you used and the layering you did. And of course your coloring is awesome and I love the liquid accents on the balloons. I hope you are doing well.
