Balloon Celebration

Hi and welcome!  We have another fabulous challenge for you at Fusion Card Challenge.

I went with the photo this time, concentrating on the theme and colors.

 I used a balloon stencil to create some balloons on a white panel. I then foiled a die-cut sentiment as well as a strip to put down the left side of the panel. The foiled sentiment is backed with a black version  slightly offset.  Some hand-drawn strings and striped paper and my card was done.

Thanks for visiting.  The design team have some gorgeous inspiration for you so be sure to check them out.

Stamps:  Hog Heaven (MFT)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Tumbled Glass, Worn Lipstick, Peacock Feathers Distress
Cardstock:  White, Black, Rose Gold Foil, Dots & Stripes Neutrals (MFT), Toner Paper
Dies:  Celebratory Greetings (MFT)
Accessories:  Wink of Stella, Big Balloons Stencil (MFT), Mini Minc Machine
