This is my card for CC538. Vicki is our hostess and she chose sahara sand, melon mambo and island indigo as her color palette. Dessert is stripes. Oops - I mixed up the dessert this week but I do have stripes in one of my balloons (lol)!!
For my card, I used the MFT "party balloons" stamp set and matching die-namics. My inspiration came from this card I had pinned on Pinterest.
My melon mambo background dsp is from the SU `sweet taffy" collection. The sahara sand frame is another MFT die as is the island indigo arrow and the pierced indigo band. I used mounting foam on the frame for added dimension.
The balloons are stamped in melon mambo and island indigo inks on sahara sand card stock. I also used mounting foam on the balloons for dimension.
The mambo ink looks darker on the sahara sand cardstock. Maybe because I just used my new Misti to get a solid image and there are more layers of ink. Love this new toy and it works just as marvelously as everyone says it does.
I stamped my birthday sentiment in island indigo. The sentiment is from a set I received in the Dec 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin'-Up.
Hope you can play along with us this week. You may be our next fave of the week and even our next guest designer.
