Hi friends!  Welcome to my post for Color Hues Challenge #24!  This time we are challenging you to use Turquoise & Coral for your card or project.

I needed some more birthday cards to add to my stash.   I recently purchased the Balloon Dies and accessories from Catherine Pooler and thought it was time to pull them out and use them.  I die cut the balloon from turquoise card stock.  I used the star die to cut the stars from the balloon.  I then used the direct to paper technique to create some coral card stock to die cut the stars from.

I glued the stars back into the die cut spaces, like putting a puzzle together.  I then stamped the sentiment using the same coral ink.  Super simple but fun birthday card.
