KW Color Challenge - Believe in Your Dreams

Good Morning Everyone,

I was so psyched to have a chance in Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #54 this week - look at these awesome colors together! It looks like summer fun! She got the inspiration for these colors from a fabric for a carseat from her friend Adrienne- wow - wish we had a fun carseat covers like this - instead of Graco gray!


For this card - I used Julee's Sketch challenge #90 and her new stamps for this card. I love this set and paper pieced the balloons with different DP. I tried to keep most of the card white and just have bits of color - can you believe its a card sans liquid pearls? I tried to keep it clean and simple. There is some crystal effects on the baskets of the balloons and also some on the clouds along with some coarse glitter.

I had a lot of fun making this card and using up some DP from my stash that seems to actually increase in size and not decrease no matter how much I try to use it up!



Card Details:
Paper: stash (I think the green and blue bits are from K&Company)
Ink: Taken With Teal from SU!
Stamps: Up Up and Away from Verve
Accessories: brads, ribbon, scallop SU punch, circle punch from CM, crystal effects, sponger, coarse glitter

Well, I am about to go plunge into the exciting world of laundry and sunday pick up now - yes - I know - its a very glamorous life! Hope you are all having a fabu sunday!

Thanks for visiting my little corner!
Ciao for now :)
Sankari :)
