Today’s card was made using the new Above the Clouds bundle (Above the Clouds stamp set and Hot Air Balloon Punch.) The balloons were colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers, and card was finished off with Mint Macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine pack and Heart Epoxy Droplets.

I tried to get at least one shot where you can really see the clear Heart Epoxy Droplets. They show up much better in person than in the photos.
