Shamrock Balloons for The Card Concept



Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a card I made for The Card Concept. Here's the inspiration photo:



I was inspired by the colors and designs. 
In fact, I had some patterned paper that had plaids and polka dots right in the shamrocks, just like in the photo. I decided to use it to make some balloons for a Birthday card. I have several Birthday's in March, so I thought the paper would be fun.

Brian King made a card recently with balloon strings coming from his sentiment, you can find that here. I thought it was a fun idea, so I tried it with MFT's Wishing and Sending stamp set and dies.




The balloons are cut out with Elizabeth Craft Designs balloons. I added a few enamel dots and adhered it all onto a Avery Elle wacky stitched rectangle.


I hope you join us at The Card Concept!

Entering this at:










Paper: SU white, certainly celery, glorious green, patterned paper
Ink: SU black
Stamps: MFT Sending and Wishing
Dies: MFT Sending and Wishing, Elizabeth Craft Designs Balloons,Avery Elle Wacky stitched rectangles
Other: enamel dots

Love this card. You are the master of CAS. Double D challenge is feeling green this week. The side bar shows the inspiration board for the next challenge. It seems like the card concept and double D are of the same mind set.
