Celebrate Today

CCMC369Can you believe it?  It’s THURSDAY already.  And of course that means it’s time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

This sketch might be a little challenging to you!  I had used another card I made. Now the problem is…when I do that, I have THAT card in my head and it can be difficult for me do a different card!  What can I say!  I do like the way this turned out though even though it is so different from the other one I made!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 1 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Boho dsp – 1/2 x 3 3/4, add to bottom of Very Vanilla piece
  • Stamp HAPPY using Bermuda Bay and Birthday using Blackberry Bliss.
  • Cut three different prints from the Boho dsp – 7/8 x 1 3/4, cut into banners, layer, add behind the Very Vanilla panel then add to card front.
  • Stamp balloon string on card using Delightful Dijon.
  • Stamp Balloon on Very Vanilla using Blackberry Bliss, cut out, stamp the flag using Island Indigo, cut out, stamp banner using Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay, cut them out, layer everything and add using dimensionals.

Isn’t that fun?  Speaking of fun…

  1. The balloon framelit is a perfect fit for this sketch! Love the use of the Boho DSP too!

  2. I love the colors and dsp you used, Mary. The balloon is just perfect for the sketch also! What a fun celebration card!

  3. I would have never thought of pairing So Saffron with that color combo but it works beautifully!

  4. I love this stamp (although mine is somewhat neglected)…and I love the double banners over the balloon that you did. Great card!!

  5. What a beautiful birthday card! I never thought a balloon could look so elegant!

  6. Love the colours of your Boho Chic card!!! Beautiful card. 🙂

  7. Great idea to use So Saffron for the base – it works so well with these colors! The patterns of this paper look great together in these small quantities! Very fun!
