CCMC215 – You’re Amazing

It's Thursday and time for the Create with Connie and Mary weekly challenge!  We have a FUN sketch challenge for you to try this week, so grab your stamps and play along!



I pulled out the new catty set, You're Amazing, to make my card!



The base of my card is Riding Hood Red.  I added the ticket print pattern from World Spectacular Designer Paper, rounded one of the corners, and layered the blue check from the same package on top.  I stamped Happy Birthday from You're Amazing on Whisper White with Riding Hood Red and Pacific Point markers.  I cut it with the Apothecary Accents Framelits and used the Paper Piercing Tool to run a line of piercing around it. 


I inked up the balloon stamp in You're Amazing with Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight Markers…then made the balloon 3D…did you notice?  I did it by folding three of the stamped balloons and adhering them back to back.  It's popped up on the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped the little ticket twice with Daffodil Delight and cut them out to place under the Happy Birthday greeting!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary

This card so reminds me of the "Crown of Maine Balloon Fest" that Dave and I attended last night. It was awesome and so is  your card!

Great card!  I love the colors.  That stamp set didn't intrigue me, but I have seen some cute things with it and it is growing on me.  Love the way you did the balloon.
