Hang in there-He'll be home soon- A Mama Elephant and ME Card Challenge

 I have a card to share today.  It uses Mama Elephant products and I'm entering it in the Mama Elephant and ME challenge. Inspired by the image below I created a card for my darling sister-in-law.  You see her son left to space camp for a week and she is missing him terribly.  

The inspiration photo

I liked the colors in the inspiration photo and used them on the balloons and the little boys clothes, as well as the grass and sky. I used Copics to color the images. That cloud paper has to be over 10 years old.  Yup you are right I NEVER purge!  I found a pack of 30lb weight vellum paper at Walmart and used it for the scalloped background.
The sentiment stamp actually says 'The best is yet to come hang in there' but I only stamped the 'hang in there' part. I used an alpha stamp from Lawn Fawn to create the inside sentiment (not photographed). It says 'He'll be home soon'. 
This card is heavily inspired by the awesome Nichol Magouirk. She is on the design team for Mama Elephant and creates the most adorable cards.  
Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be back soon with a Project Life share.
