Stampin' Up! Balloon Celebration

Today I picked an unusual theme for one of my challenges. I am not a tea drinker unless I am deathly ill but I wanted to practice coloring. Here's my finished product...

I chose to use my dark and light blue Pool Party Blends and Crumb Cake Blends to enter the challenge at Color Throwdown #476...light blue, kraft and white.

The design of my card was inspired by the sketch at Atlantic Hearts.

I used a kraft card base with a kraft corrugated mat. I took my DSP and cut it into three equal pieces, tied a piece of linen thread around the top in a bow and added my banner sentiment with a heart.

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you enjoyed my card.


  1. Cute card! Love the colors, pretty teapots and cups! I only drink the iced variety of tea myself unless I'm sick too! :)
