Just Add Balloons…


Over at Just Add Ink the challenge is to add Balloons to our project.  I knew I wanted to play along so I went looking for a color challenge and a sketch challenge to make it more fun!  I found this great sketch over at Unscripted Sketches and went and checked out what The Play Date Cafe was up to.  I needed to make a masculine birthday card this weekend for my boss and when I saw there color palette, I knew it was going to be perfect!  I took two photos so that you can see the card is a tri-fold.




0color story 160The sentiment is from Verve.

The Cardstock is Gina K.

The paper is a mix of CM, Bazzill, and scrap of who knows.

Used my cuttlebug and dots folder for the clouds along with my favorite spellbinders die.

I paper pieced the Hot Air Balloon stamp from Michaels.

Thanks so much for looking and have a great weekend.
