three balloons...

Hello friends!!  Have a little card to share that I made for a couple of challenges:  ColourQ and CAS(E) this Sketch.  


The ColourQ combo was a bit of a tricky one for me so I kept the colors to a minimum and also went with more muted versions of the colors.  The CTS layout is another fun one and as I pondered the design and flipped through my stamp collection I settled on this cute little balloon image from the Hero Arts set Happy Birthday.  I did a bit of paper piecing and used several different patterned papers (from Teresa Collins and My Mind's Eye) for the balloons.  The banner was created using a strip of white card stock that had been trimmed from the main panel.  The sentiment was stamped and then one end fishtailed.  I adhered the banner so that it curves up in the center.   There you have it super clean and super simple!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; PP:  My Mind's Eye & Teresa Collins; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
