Freshly Made Sketches #165

Today I made a card for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #165 and I also want to link it to Addicted To Stamps - CAS Challenge

The challenge at FMS was this sketch

This is the card



I used a watercolour piece I made for the background to the stitched circle frame, cut the frame and stuck it to the watercolour piece, then I stuck it to the front of a textured card base.

I stamped the balloons and die cut them and attached some twine and then stamped the sentiment and fussy cut that (not really fussy, more straightforward).  Then I stuck the first balloon straight onto the card and added the second one with foam tape, to add dimension.  Finally, I coated the balloons with A Wink Of Stella and some Glossy Accents.

The challenge for the Addicted To Stamps was for a Clean and Simple card, which, I hope, this is!

A simple card with a pop of colour.

Supplies used:

Stamps - Alte&New, 'Label Love',  and WPlus9, 'Happy Everything'
Dies - Stitched Circle (from one of MFT's Blueprints set) & WPlus9 - 'Happy Everything' for the balloons

Thanks for popping by to visit and I appreciate all your comments.  Have a good weekend!   Hazel x
