More great news for me and another challenge card

I can not believe how lucky I have been these last couple of days I got home from my night shift this morning and found an email from The very lovely Teresa from Crafts and me offering me a place on her DT which of course I did not even have to think about I sent one back typing as quick as I could taking her up on the offer.
If you have not been to Crafts and me you have to have a look they stock a whole range of crafting goodies and all the best stamps (They are the only seller in the UK to stock the amazing sweetpea stamps, which you may have noticed I am hooked on :D ).

Now onto my card which is for the following challenges:
Sketch and stash - I have used their sketch.
Polly Craft Challenge Blog - They want to see some distressing on your creation and I have distressed round the edges of every DP.
Creative Craft Crew - They want you to create something for celebration.
I have used this super cute image called "Tiger fun" from Karen's Doodles and coloured him with promarkers and then covered the balloons in glossy accents so they are shiny not that you can really see it in the pic. The gold card stock is embossed which adds a bit of texture I got it from a show last year but can't remember now who it was from. The papers are from K&co and the brown dotty one is from papermania. The peel offs and gems are from my stash. I have distressed round all the edges with versa magic chalk ink in turquoise gem colour.
