Daring Balloon Ride

Happy Wednesday! This morning I decided to start the day off with a little stamping. I've had these cute digi papers from the Garden Party Mini Kit printed and sitting on my desk for about a week, so I decided to cut into them. The colors are a little more daring than I'm used to, so I knew I had to use the Dare to be you sentiment. And I've seen so many adorable cards with the stripes on this balloon paper pieced, that I just had to give it a go.



For the layout I went with a whimsical, floating feel. The main balloon panel is cut with the Nestabilities Labels 3 and I used the SU! Lots of Tags Sizzix die for the oval shape. The ribbon is some wide pomegranate satin ribbon from my stash and I added one of those fabulous Finishing Touches from flourishes. These ones are the copper variety. A little stardust stickles on my clouds and some black kaiser craft pearls on the side and voila!

What's In It?
Stamps: Up, Up and Away, Dare to Be You (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Garden Party Mini Kit (Elise's Pieces), Black and white cardstock
Ink: A Muse Black, Copic markers
Accessories: Labels 3 (Nestabilities), Lots of Tags dies, wide oval punch, satin ribbon (SU!), Finishing Touches (Flourishes), Stardust stickles, Kaiser craft black pearls
