I used our Challenge colors (CC513) again to make this birthday card. On a panel slightly smaller than the card front I stenciled with gray working towards an ombre look of fading out toward the edges. Die cut the balloons, blended with blender tool also trying to blend in an ombre fashion, then embossed silver or white stars on the balloons and then sprayed with shimmer spritz for some lovely sparkle! Die cut the string bows using a die from the bunting set (AE) - love how this looks! Die cut the happy 3x and stacked for depth, blended the top one also in an ombre fashion and spritzed also with shimmer spritz. Stamped sentiment on the flag, and assembled, adding floss for the strings, and popping up the sentiment flag - one balloon is popped up also. So happy with how this turned out!

Boy o' boy did this turn out tertific. All the blending looks fantastic. The fading out on the bkg looks great...I never think to stencil with grey. The light to dark on the sentiment turned out so well and I love the silver stars. Pinned and faved.
