**This is my second post for today, click here or scroll down for my January Whimsy Release and inspiration post.**
Another card today inspired by Anita's lovely card over at Muse Challenge and CASology: Open.
I used the same layout from Anita's card and chose to mimic the pops of color against all the white space. I stamped the tiny striped background stamp onto a piece of cardstock. Trimmed the piece down. Sponged distress inks onto the panel. I then die cut the balloon out of the panel to reveal more white space. Stamped the balloon string and sentiment. Added the twine bow and clear drop to finish off my card.
I had to make a card with the lovely striped heart balloon. :)
Adding the top one over at Time Out Challenge.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!!!
Stamps: Confetti Toss (Papertrey Ink), Happy Everything (Whimsy Stamps)
Accessories: Black and White Twine

I am totally loving both of these cards Kristie! The stripped background on your first card is awesome, it is so bold and colorful and just pops with the balloon cut out. And I loved that you used the positive balloon as well on your second card. Both are just fabulous! Hugs, BrendaReplyDelete
