Birthday balloons

Hello! Here is my take on this weeks Freshly Made Sketch paired with the color challenge over at Just us Girls.

I made up a back ground using some re-inkers in shades of blue. Then cut out some balloons using the die from Papertrey, Ink. I did add a border around the balloons using the darkest blue ink and a finger dauber.

Added a few strings using some blue bakers twine and tied a bow.

Sentiment is from Papertrey, Ink and the dark blue cardstock is from Bazzill.

This one came together pretty quickly and kept it CAS.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day.

I love how your card is so perfectly clean and simple - but with so much interest in the colors of the balloon! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
