The Paper Players : Up Up & Away!

Hi there!

It's a CAS week over at The Paper Players and Joanne has chosen the theme of Up, Up & Away !

                                               

I hope my card inspires you to play along!






I used a cutting file from Miss Kate cuttables called heart balloons.


I added my own sentiment created with the font Cashew-apple-ale.

I had inspiration from 2 other challenges to create my card:

Freshly made sketches ~ sketch

&

Muse card club  ~ Caseing Tracey McNeely


                                     

I rotated the sketch to portrait orientation and changed the 3 flower elements in Tracey's card to 3 balloons, using the 3 main colors of yellow, turquoise and pink .

Thanks for looking, and please join us in our Up, Up & Away challenge at The Paper Players!

Those three colours really pop against the white background. Love the black shadowing behind the heart balloons. Such fun 'ribbons' hanging from the balloons. Great take on the challenges, thank you for the inspiration x

Hannelie I love your heart shaped balloons and couldn't wait to see what die you used, only to find out you created them with your Cameo. I have been resisting buying one as I really don't have the space, but you make it so hard!

Jaydee said...

Hannelie - love the balloons and I love how you tied them to the banners as well. Fabulous.
Hugs
Jaydee

Wonderlik gedoen, vrou!!!!! Mal oor jou skattige hartjie balonne in die vrolike kleure wat herhaal word in die vlaggies aan die onderkant!!! En die balonne se toutjies is so oulik met die hartjies daarin!!!! Hou van die kreatiewe manier waarop jy die sentiment gedoen het!!!! Baie geluk met die princess by FMS - welverdiend!!!!
Groete
