PP400 - Second Week!

Hi again, friends!  We're into the second week of our big 400th Celebration over at The Paper Players.  There are tons of prizes that will be given to 41 winners randomly drawn from all the participants.  Be sure to enter for a chance to win some amazing prizes.  Check out our original post for all the rules and details.
The balloons in our challenge badge are so much fun, that this week they inspired me to dig out any stamps I had featuring balloons.  I settled on a retired set, Balloon Adventures and with the awesome sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch in hand....here's what I made:
 I let the colors from a retired DSP pack, Cherry on Top, take center stage with my bouquet of festive balloons.  Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Cucumber Crush, and Calypso Coral (not in the paper pack but I liked it anyway!)  Since the sketch challenge is a clean-and-simple one, I kept the design verrrry simple.  Just a piece of balloon string paper for the background and the punched balloons.
I did add a liberal amount of Wink of Stella to the polka dots and stripes for a little bit of glam.  Stop on by The Paper Players to check out all the inspiration from my teammates during this second week of our celebration!  I hope you will find time to play along before the challenge closes on Friday, July 13th at Noon (PST).  You don't want to miss out on these prizes!!

This is so perfectly formed, Nance. The paper you've picked is just right - subtle, interesting and in theme. The balloons are great - and I think the Calypso Coral lifts the whole bunch. The silver ties - I love that cording trim. My stash of it is diminishing. It's a great card.

Not only are those balloons festive with stripes and dots and wonderful colors, the background is beautiful too! Love the silver balloon cords all tied together too!

What a great card for a celebration Nance - love the silver strings and touch of sparkle on the balloons too! This would be a great card to make a few for my stash - I feel a CASE coming on and I have some of that background paper too! Thanks for the inspiration this week!
