Description: I tried challenging myself for this card. In order to create the rolled corners, I took a ballpoint pen and curled the paper around it and marked the spot for the brad. I then punched the holes (only through the printed paper and not cardstock) and placed the brads. I've only used Diamond Glaze a couple of times and wanted to brighten the faux sun I created with that. I then took a hole punch around the scallop punch for a different sunny look. The most difficult part of the card that took the majority of the time was lining up the tiny, very bendable wires for the strings to the hot air balloon. They bend easily. I would probably use a different product next time :-)
