Celebrate Today! CCMC345

How about some blue skies today?   We've have so many days of grey and white (it's snowing as I write this) that this Designer Paper looks really good to me!  I'm ready for blue skies and sunshine as I know many of you in North America must be also!  Today is a super Sketch Challenge from Create with Connie and Mary, #CCMC345.

I broke out my Celebrate Today set for this challenge as the circles on the sketch immediately made me think of these fun balloons!  I diecut the Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay balloons with the Balloon Framelits then punched out the Rose Red dsp dotted balloon.  I used the Rose Red Crochet Trim from the Artisan Designer Kit for the diagonal band and added a Petite Petal flower punched from Bermuda Bay DSP. The flower center and little bow are both Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for some bling!  The banner stamp was colored with markers then diecut with its corresponding framelit.

Stamps:  Celebrate Today
Ink:  Bermuda Bay pad, Bermuda Bay and Rose Red Stampin' Write Markers
Paper:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight cardstocks; Brights and Regals Designer Series Packs; Sweet Dreams DSP (clouds) and Painted Blooms DSP (Rose Red dots); Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Artisan Embellishment Kit; Balloons Framelits. 2" and 1/4" Circle Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Love your balloon card, Margaret! It is a great use of the sketch and balloons in bright colors is a sure way to brighten a gloomy day!

Great balloon card! I was hoping someone would be inspired by this stamp and use it! Genius idea to use the clouds from the DSP behind it. :)
Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary this week. :)

This is SO cute Margaret! What a great birthday card! I haven't even used the pennants yet, but they are darling across the balloon! Great job with the sketch this week!
