Hi all, it is already the 15th of March....wow, the time flies quickly by. This month the hostesses for our monthly DDD challenge were Darlene for the dazzlers and Laura Jean for the divas. What a fun kit LJ sent to us. This is what she included:
Images (some die-cut) & sentiments from Up Up and Away from My Favorite Things, patterned paper from Fancy Pants (Life is Beautiful Collection) SU! Calypso Coral Seam Binding Ribbon, SU! 5/8" Marina Mist Ribbon, Misc other embellishments.
This was a great challenge for me as I wasn't quite sure how to layout the card and really "showcase" the beautiful balloons LJ sent along. I wanted to used as much of the awesome DSP as I could as well as the embellishments. I finally came up with this card.
I used a layout with half the front of the card cut away and used the dsp to accent the basic black cardstock I used for a base. I colored the balloons and then cut out the solid balloon on the sheet. I layered the perfectly cut balloon over my hand cut balloon with mounting tape between the layers and used the pretty coral ribbon to tie on to the balloon layer.
I hope you like my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. If you have a chance, stop by and visit the other duelers as well. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
Until next time,
