Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today Balloons


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I thought that the sketch at Case This Sketch this week looked pretty cool and would lend itself to a tag and balloon card. :)

The balloon is stamped in Tangelo Twist and the DSP is the Bermuda Bay piece from Birthday Bash. 

Here are the colours for this week's challenge:

Card recipe

I hope you will join in and create a card with us.....and please feel free to leave me and the other CCMC participants some comments! :)

  1. Oh, this is so fun! Fabulous take on the sketch!

  2. A perfect CAS birthday card Alison - the white space really allows the colours to pop! Love the addition of the sequins too for just the right amount of sparkle.

  3. I love your card! It's so fresh and clean and colorful! Love the balloon with the golden bow and sequin ribbons!

  4. Love, love, love the stripes and the shiny details with the sequins and bow!

  5. Cute and simple! I really like how you used both colors of sequins for the balloon tail.

  6. These are great colors for a balloon and a tag. Your card is so festive with the added sequins and gold foil! Clean and simple, but also fun and lively!

  7. Beautiful as always Alison! Nice and clean with a little bling! Wait... That rhymed. ha! ;)
