Birthday Balloons

The Sketch over at Mojo Monday  http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/2011/03/mojo-monday-184.html  gives you the choice of either round or square.

I went with the square shape.  And also over at JUGs http://justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/just-us-girls-77-3d-challengeits-all.html  it's a 3-D challenge to make a zipper flower.  Well this is only the 2nd zipper flower that I have made and it just might be my last.  My fingers just don't work as well as they used to.
This also fits the challenge at Creative Belli Blog  http://bellichallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/belli-challenge-think-seamtress.html

I was digging in my dp scrap box and came across these 3 papers that coordinated.  Then on my work table I had the negative piece from an inverted scalloped circle die cut.  The flower took me about 4 tries before I decided that this was good enough.  The balloons are popped up with dimentionals and tied with yellow scrapbook floss.

Stamps:  Gina K Square Pegs, In Stitches and Tag Lines senitment
cardstock:  Gina K Pure Luxury White, Wild Dandelion and Grass Green, SU blue
ink:  Colorbox Chalk Prussian Blue and Lime Pastel, VersaMagic Pink Grapefruit
accessories:  zipper, pearl brad, MS leafy branch punch, EK Success border punch, Nestabilities inverted scalloped circle, ribbon and square punch to punch the tail of the sentiment piece.

Thanks for looking!
