Gingersnap 116 challenge) The challenge at Created by Hand is birthday/balloons and it's Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp and Show. The card is a bit larger than my usual -- 5 1/2 x5 1/2 inches square.
To create this card I used the Kitchen Sink Multi Step Bunch O' Balloons stamps for the focal image. I adhered the image layer to layers of blue and yellow . Then I adhered everything to a red card base. The corners were embellished with corner outline stickers. The sentiment was stamped on a pennant die cut from Spellbinders.
Color Recipe: (All inks are Adirondack unless noted)
Balloons -- 1 peach bellini, 2 watermelon, 3 lady bug (memento), 4 ruby (club scrap), 5 cranberry
Strings -- 1 coffee, 2 jet black
