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.
