Hi everyone, for this weeks Stamping and Blogging sketch challenge I decided to use the Balloon Bash stamp set and Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack. Here is my card for SB96.
I cut the background piece of Designer Series Paper down and used the left over pieces to create a little banner and also to make three of the little candles. The candles were a little fiddly to roll, but I love the way they turned out. I coloured the remaining two candles, clear embossed over the top of the candles, and then added some Crystal Effects to make them stand out a little more. I finished the card off by inking up a small portion of one of the stamps from the Balloon Bash set to stamp the saying at the bottom of the card.
Here is a photo of this weeks sketch that I designed my card from.
I love visiting all the other talented ladies on the design team to see what they have come up with each week. Make sure you take the time to visit their website, I am sure they would love to hear your comments.
