Oh my goodness, has it really been 10 days since I last posted?! Yikes! Sorry friends, I guess I needed a bit of a break. :-) Thank goodness for this week's challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary to get my crafting mojo in gear! This week we have some really pretty colors for CCMC159, how about Regal Rose, Marina Mist and Sahara Sand...lovely!
I paired this week's colors with this adorable sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC126):
With colors and sketch in hand, I knew just what I wanted to do...
I just love that flagged end to the Regal Rose designer paper! The balloon was made by stamping a sentiment from the new hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes in Marina Mist ink onto MM cardstock. The circle was made with the 2 1/2" circle punch and edged with some Tombow liquid adhesive and Silver Glass Glitter.The balloon basket from Sweet Centers was stamped in Sahara Sand to which I added some Regal Rose balloon weights, Linen Thread ties and Sahara Sand clouds punched with the Build-a-Cupcake punch. I can't believe I don't have a Regal Rose marker so I substituted with a RR ink pad and blender pen. Guess what's on my next order?!
I love those cupcake clouds! And here's a quick peek at the inside:
Another banner panel for the inside with more clouds, this time sponged with Marina Mist ink and the super happy sentiment also from the Happiest Birthday Wishes hostess set.
That's all for me today folks--I hope to be back to a regular posting schedule now. Be sure to check out the rest of the design team inspiration over at Create with Connie & Mary--they're sure to have some lovely projects! We hope you'll play along with us--we can't wait to see what you create with these colors!
