No Surprise Here....

I made a card tonight - not really a surprise.
It incorporates several challenges - again, not really a surprise!




So anyway - after that lack of surprise - here are the details:
  • The sketch is this week's Stamps & Smiles sketch from the Fresh Batch - sort of! I went a LITTLE big on the little side element - in my case - the balloon! So I will just say that the sketch inspired this card - that's what it's all about right??
  • 365 Cards asked for two colors - in this case turquoise and orange
  • If the Shoe Fits Color challenge today was black, orange and turquoise - actually, I think it said teal, but it was really turquoise on the screen, so....
  • Our Creative Corner asked for the sentiment as a focal image - not totally sure the balloon doesn't "over-impose" on the sentiment, but...you be the judge!
  • Cute Card Thursday (new challenge for me) asked for bling! Now, I definitely got this one - the Kaiser Craft rhinestones in the corner and you probably can't tell but I glittered the balloon with my stardust pen.
And that's my story and I am sticking to it! :)

I was wondering how long it was going to take you to use your new Up Up and Away set.
