Celebrate with a Balloon — FMS169

Are you ready for another fun sketch challenge?  Well, we have a good one for you over at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  The always fabulous Jennifer Timko has a versatile sketch for us to work with this week:

I have a new box of goodies from the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs, and I’ve barely had a chance to look at it yet.  I carved out a half hour yesterday and decided that the sketch lent itself to one of the new balloon dies in the Balloon Framelits Die collection.

Celebrate BalloonI used the framelit on the pretty piece of dsp from the Birthday Bash Specialty dsp collection.  I stamped the balloon and confetti on a piece of Whisper White card stock and placed it behind the dsp with dimensional adhesive.  Behind that, I layered a piece of Night of Navy card stock and used a Calypso Coral base.

Celebrate Balloon Close UpI added some sequins and hand-cut the sentiment.  It all came together pretty easily and quickly.  I love having a great sketch with which to work!

We hope you’ll be able to play along and post your own card to the gallery.  You can check out what the rest of the design team created at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Fabulous card Amy! That balloon is perfect! I love the sequin tail!! That’s my kind of balloon! I love the colours! You have such a knack for putting colours together that I would never think of and they look amazing!!!

  3. What a clever design, Amy. I love how you turned that circle into a balloon, and how you used a stand of the sequins for the tail! Such a fun and festive card!
