To start my card, I die cut the balloon frame out of white cardstock to help lay out where I wanted to stamp the puppy. Then I stamped the pup and colored him with Zig clean color markers. I colored the balloon frame with the same zig colors as his collar. For the shaker piece, I adhered the colored frame to the outside of a balloon shaped shaker window. I piled the Doodles Paper Playground sparkle blend in a little pile on the cardstock and adhered the shaker window over it. Then I tied a piece of string around the bottom of the balloon and used a little bit of glue at the bottom of the string to keep it in the right shape. The sentiment was die cut from black cardstock and then heat embossed in white. I added it to the string to make it look like it was attached. The last touch was curving two of the corners.
