Life is like a balloon...

 These images and the "Life is like..." sentiment are all three by Mo Manning and can be found at Mo's Digital Pencil.

The details include enamel dots, matching ribbon and a hand drawn frame.


The inside is completed with designer paper left over from the front and a hand made envelope to house the philosophical sentiment.

 All coloring was done with Copics.  In an attempt to keep the scene airy I used a long unused [by me] Pointillism technique to indicate the ground and the sky.
