This time the pale pink pirouette is combined with lush strawberry slush and the soft Sahara sand. I only have Strawberry slush, so I have improvised with a generi
C pale pink and a tawny grey colour. You don't have to use the exact Stampin aka up colours, just as close as you can and no other colours. I found a new(to me) challenge too, I just loved these balloons, and it was the little fluffy cloud that really inspired my design
To make the balloons I used one of the dies from Ornament Keepsakes, cut out two, one in each of the pinks and two more in the 'grey'. I then cut out panels from the grey ones and stuck them on top of the pink ones. I used the cloud embossing folder to create the background.
I stamped the Hello in the two pinks down the side of the card, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get them exactly in the right place. You can see here that one of the balloons is popped up.
This card is going to be winging its way across to the States as a swap card. I love swapping cards, I only craft for my own family and friends, but this way I can send them to others who I know will appreciate a handmade card. I'm always interested to know what other crafters do, do you sell yours, donate to charity or just do it for fun like me?
