Hello balloons


Friiiiiday!!! Finally a bit of time in the craft room. And it was like getting back to the gym after a break... my crafting muscles had atrophied! It took a few tries to actually get a card together. This card was supposed to be something completely different and I needed a few tries before getting there. 

Anyhow, after a few misguided die-cuts and stampings, I got my act together with the help of inspiration from ColourQ and RetroSketches. I absolutely love the Tim Holtz balloon stamp. And I've wanted to do the sentiment with layers of stashed different coloured die cuts for ages. This sketch gave me a perfect chance to do that! I'm also linking up at Through the Craft Room Door and Craft Your Passion where Anything Goes.


Card: 300 gsm white card, Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay and Wild Wasabi, kraft card, Dovecraft 110 gsm premium vellum
Stamp: Tim Holtz Remnants
Ink: Stampin' Up Bermuda Bay, Wild Wasabi
Other: Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles and Hello die, sequins from my stash
