Balloons and Pineapples

A couple of challenges inspired my Balloon card.

And CAS on Sunday - Balloons

For your blog

First stamped the sentiment and dotted borders, then masked that off and stamped the balloons and strings.  Colored in the open circles on the borders with a red gel pen.  Stamps by CAS-ual Fridays and WPlus9.

I also had to play with my new stamps from Concord & 9th, so used the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches

Stamped the stripes from Joy stamp set with Memento Rich Cocoa on kraft.  Die cut a couple of shapes and added the pineapple from Pop Art Pineapples stamped with Memento Cantaloupe and Rich Cocoa and stamped the sentiment from Layers of Love in Memento Espresso Truffle.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
