Birthday balloon bouquet

Hi everyone! My boss has a birthday coming up and she deserves something special. Using this weeks CAS(e) this sketch, this is what I came up with.

Balloons were cut out using the die from Papertrey, Ink and then stamped using the Balloon Bash stamp set. I used Colorbox wild cherry ink from MFT to stamp as it gives a nice coverage for solid stamps.

Sentiment is from Birthday Bash sentiments. I had no idea that these sets were both called "bash" until I sat down to write up this blog post. Funny! Anyway, added the flower border using the small flowers in the set that match the flowers in the balloons. Even added a few on the inside using white pigment ink.

Red and white bakers twine used for the strings and then I tied a tiny bow using the Bow Easy. Everything on this card except for the ink I used is from PTI.

Here is the sketch.














Thanks for stopping by!
