 Morning Everyone,

I thought I'd join in with the celebrations theme at Allsorts for their 700th challenge with this card I've made for a friend's birthday using the Balloon Bouquet and twisted crepe dies from The Greetery at Seven Hills Crafts.

I stamped the main part of the balloon in pink onto a snippet of white and that leaves all the gaps for the flowers which, with the leaves, are stamped in four different stages. It's not always easy to get them lined up properly and I needed a few goes at it before I was satisfied.  The lilac balloon was coloured with copics.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in silver and I've added glitter to the crepe dies and the number 70.

I would like to enter:

Allsorts - Celebrations 
Creative Inspirations - Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle
Snippets Playground - Snippets were used for the balloons, twisted crepe and no. 70
Classic Design - Anything Goes
PIP challenge 2244 - Celebrations

Me again Lynne. I've been gazing at your beautiful floral balloon and only now realise just how intricate it was to stamp and assemble - well done!

Beautiful!!! I really love the effect of those twisted crepe paper die cuts. Reminds me of twisting those for my kids birthdays when they were young. Thanks for playing along at Pammie's Inky Pinkies. Hope to see you again. Bonnie DT
