Hello stampers,
     I hope your week is going well. I've been busy, busy with rescue stuff & sick kitties. Poor babies, but their foster parents will give them plenty of TLC to get them back on the road to a healthy life.
     This week's BSU challenge is all about the color combo, Carol wanted spring colors & My Create Ink gave us this- Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Pumpkin Pie, Pool Party & White. WOW, what a color combo! Pumpkin Pie really through me off with the other colors by I found a way to work around it, I also cheated & added in Soft Suede to the mix, but you'll understand why when you see the card.
     For this card, I used Whisper White Card Stock for both the base & the stamped layer. Pumpkin Pie Card Stock was used for the second layer. For the stamped piece, I used Soft Suede Ink for the bear from the Bear Hugs Stamp Set, then masked him to be able to stamp the balloon strings in Pumpkin Pie Ink from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set. Next, I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out some balloons using Pool Party, Calypso Coral & Wisteria Wonder Card Stock then using the corresponding inks to put the confetti on the balloons. All were attached using Tombo Multi Glue except the Wisteria Wonder balloon which was popped up using a Stampin' Dimensional. Lastly, I used a sentiment from the Balloon Celebration Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink.
     Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.
