Make The Cards Challenge #33


 Welcome back friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on  Make The Cards Challenge.
Today we are having a sketch challenge ...


What a fun sketch to create with today!  The possibilities are ENDLESS but since I am always in need of Birthday cards, that is the theme I had in mind when choosing papers, embellishments.

I've used Mintay 'Graceful' designer papers today and a Tutti Designs flag die.  I punched a few holes at the top to run my thin organza ribbon through and tied a bow to make it extra pretty.  My sentiment dies are from Tutti Designs and the balloons were created using an Elizabeth Craft die set and the strings are actually Nuvo Crystal drops.

I'm not sure why my PINK balloon came out more of an salmon color  ... because, it's REALLY PINK and matches the background paper perfectly!  LOL  oh well, sometimes you just can't trust those cameras!  They can have a mind of their own!
