One More card for the weekend

This card also used a new stamp set from the Stampin Up 2016 Occasions catalogue, the "Balloon Builders" set.

This card was based on 3 challenges:

Hand Stamped Sentiments - #230
IN{K}SPIRE_me - #234

I really enjoyed this colour combination with this stamp set and masking the balloons so they overlapped, it suits the simplicity of the sketch.

Check out the wonderful ideas the design teams of these challenges have created for inspiration.

4 C Card Challenge

Usually when I have time to do a challenge card, I look at my regular sites (and maybe a few new ones) and then sit down to make the card usually with at least a sketch and a colour challenge and maybe a topping or technique challenge. This card used 4 challenges and it wasn't until I was ready to blog that I noticed all of the sites for this card started with "C".

CAS(E) this sketch - #157

CAS Colours & Sketches - #158
ColourQ - #326
Crafty Cardmakers - #156 Punches and/or Dies

This card uses the new "Number of Years" stamp set from the Stampin Up 2016 Occasions catalogue and it's matching framelits, as well as the "Hello You" thinlits. This will make a wonderful birthday card for one of the lovely ladies at work.

Thank you to the design teams for their inspiration.
