When it's not your lucky day card...

Here's a card i made creating my own papers for Love to Scrap! challenge "Back it Up!"
the challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo and Eureka Stamps.
i used blue paint to make the blue papers: a plain paper and a splattered one.
and for the one with the boy, i sewed it, grated the edges, then distressed them, then stamped with flourishes and added some glitter spots.

i glued a wool strand on a metallic strand to make the ballon hold

when it's not your lucky day, you might need a hug, hence the "hug coupon"

my tools: 
stamps: Eureka stamps "it got away boy" + sentiments: my creations+artemio flourish
ink: vintage distress ink
coloring: pencils + promarkers: shirt+ballon: arctic+powder blue. trousers: dusky pink+burnt sienna. skin: pastel pink+ cocktail pink. hair : spice +honey brown 
frame: lifestyle quickutz doily square.

Another fabulous card by you!! Your splatter background is great and I love how you did the balloon escaping from the unlucky little guy. The hug ticket was a cute idea, because he will need one. :o) Great Job!
