Up, Up & Away

Things have settled down for a while: all the Jubilee celebrations are over, the craft fairs have happened and the workshops done and dusted. Dad's chemo is keeping him well and my Grandad who was having various tests and scans has now been given the all clear - life is good and I have time to craft and even better - brilliant challenges to take part in!

Here's my card

My sky has been stamped using a post it note mask and Tempting Turquoise ink, my balloons (from the Up, Up & Away set) have been stamped in Tangerine Tango and Cherry Cobbler ink - the base card is Very Vanilla.

These are the challenges I am entering this card into;

Simply Stampin' - Colour Challenge

CAS-ual Fridays - Create a Clean and Simple project using polka dots/

Thanks for looking - Jacqueline xx

  11. Awww, that tiny flower in the corner is so sweet, and I love the way the stamped and sponged sky only covers part of the card base. Clever! Great job with this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge:)
