 I used liquid glass to make the balloons shine.
 The paper is Kaleidoscope
I added some green shimmer trim 
The balloon "string" is a  thin strip of gypsy paper, the bow is a few strings from the whisper  thick twine
I inked circles on the gypsy pattern paper bokeh style with White Daisy ink
Add a zip strip from the Kaleidoscope paper and other pattern paper top wth silver sequins topped with clear sparkles and colored with ShinHan Lavender.

Now "Hop" on over to Brenda Lapp of Crafting for Sanity? Or Insanity? to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
