Simon Says Get in Shape!

Hello everyone!


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Furry Friends Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too
This week the challenge is Get In Shape!

This is my shaped card!

Happy Birthday balloon card1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

I used the largest of the balloons from Simon Says Stamp Balloons die set for my card base. I die cut two balloons. I sponged Sea Glass ink on one of the balloons die which will be my card front. One the second balloon die, I scored at one inch from the top on which I added some tape and adhered to the back of the first balloon.

For the focal point, I stamped the banner from Lawn fawn Bannerific stamp set, then masked the banner and stamped the flowers and leaves from Lawn Fawn Flutter By stamp set. They were coloured using copic markers and added shimmer using Sakura glitter pen. I then hand cut the cluster out and adhered on the balloon card front. Then I  stamped the tiny flower image on the balloon front using black ink and embellished with Pretty Pink Posh iridescent sequins. The pink baker’s twine is from Doodlebug.

Hope you like my balloon card.
