CYCI #111 and SSC#122

I felt really challenged to participate in two different challenges for today’s card.  The first was an open-ended color challenge (my own pick of 3) from CYC#111 and a layout challenge full of circles and SSC122

Challenging for two reasons:  To be able to pick your own colors can be daunting.  Sometimes it’s easier to work within limits.  The circles I find challenging just because I almost never completely use circles.  I tend to go for right angles.  Even for this card, I couldn’t help but incorporate a rectangle at the bottom.

So here we go…

For today’s card I started with a base of Thick Whisper White layered with Calypsal Coral.

I then layered three different colored balloons from the Balloon Celebration Bundle over 1-3/4″ circles of the corresponding color.  I used Calypsal Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Mint Macaron.  I then used the smallest circle from the Circles Framelits and a 1/4″ hole punch to add some smaller circles.

The sentiment, “Happy Birthday” comes from the Balloon Celebration Bundle also and is stamped in Calypsal Coral.  To finish it off, I added a Mint Macaron Enamel Dot.

Enjoy!
