Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is
(any color or material ... paper, ribbon)
Here's the mood board I've created to help inspire you . . .
Here's what I came up with!
It's totally different from what I first envisioned
but still love how it came together!
I started out today's card by first going through my designer
papers looking to see what gingham patterns I had available
and came across some beautiful papers in the Mintay by Karola
The top panel is the reverse side of this gingham sheet that was cut
off the one end to fit my A6 size card base. But instead of just
using the plain long cut strip, I decided to add some style
and texture by die cutting it using the Frantic Stamper
The leafy tree die on the left side comes from a Yvonne Creations
My sentiment die is by Die'sire 'Wishing you a Happy Birthday' (DS-EDG-HAP)
and my festive balloon is from the Elizabeth Craft 'Balloons' die set (#726).
After die cutting the balloon from one of the small square decorative
panels in the same paper pad, I adhered it to a scrap of black card stock
and fussy cut around to create a mat. Matching green Baker's Twine
was added for the balloon string.
REMEMBER: We have a fun prize to give away to one lucky player,
which will be chosen by Random.org
