What's Inside - Fab'n'Funky Challenge #158

We've a fun challenge for you this week at
and our lovely hostess Beccy would like to see
"What's Inside" your creations.

Our sponsor is Stamp Fairy

I've used a sweet image, generously given to us by Stamp Fairy and she is called Molly Balloons.

And I've put a surprise inside!

Molly is on the inside as well, but this time she's standing.

I used pink honeycomb paper from Inky Antics to make the balloon. 
 I cut a half circle and attached it so that when you open the card it pops open. 
 Twine was attached to the bottom then strung to Molly's hand. 
The sentiment is an old QuicKutz die and the border is Spellbinders Parisian Accents
Dies on the front are Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Circles and Decorative Circles One, Large Circle, Large Scallop Circle and  MB Tupelo Circle
CB embossing folder
White Fine Tip Sharpie used to make the dots on her dress
Coloured with Copics

Entering the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by.
