Once again, I loved this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
I knew I wanted something fun and bright so I went birthday balloons!
To start off I used Watermelon Wonder. I then layered some Whisper White over Flirty Flamingo. Next I created my “falling balloons” using the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set. Starting from the top I used Flirty Flamingo and just used the different shades of it – first stamping off twice for one row, then stamping off once for the next row, and finally for the bottom two rows, stamping directly onto the cardstock.
I wanted to add some extra depth, so I used the same stamping to create three balloons which I cut out using the coordinating balloon punch. The sentiment on the balloons actually comes from the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set. I just cut out the words individually (and didn’t use the “Hi”).
For the bottom of the card, I cut out a strip of a lined pattern in Watermelon Wonder from the Fruit Stand DSP and then layered over it some Watermelon Wonder Mini Striped Ribbon and lastly the Happy Birthday which is from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set.
