Bright Balloons

I have been a bit too busy lately to make any cards to enter into challenges but the sketch at Simply Stampin' this week has been on my mind and so I decided to join in. Here is the sketch

Sketches are probably my favourite kind of challenge as the content is up to you as long as the basic layout can be seen. I chose to use my Up, Up and Away set this time a gorgeous little set with loads of balloons and fab sentiments.
Here is my card

See the red scalloped edge on the left - that is made by stamping the polka dot balloon 5 times, cutting them out and then laying them along the length of the card. To disguise the joins I added some tiny flowers and pearls.
All my papers are various pieces of Stampin' Up DSP along with Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler card stock. My ink colours are Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight.
See you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. Oh my word, so ingenious to use the polka dot balloon to make the scalloped border Jacqueline! Love the colours you chose on your fab card!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at Simply Stampin'! Ruth x

  2. Jacqueline, this is AWESOME! I love how you have used the balloons. Just really, really clever. I hope you don't mind if I ever borrow that idea? Beautiful!

  3. Those balloons along the side look absolutely fabulous - very clever!! I also love all those little flowers in between! Fabulous card. Thanks for joining us this week at the Simply Stampin' challenge.
