A Bunch of Balloons

We are officially in the second half of Sale-A-Bration which means we have some new products to earn.  Today I got a chance to work with all three of them.  I found two perfect challenges to help me show off my Party Pants!  I love the sketch over at Pals Paper Arts and Just Add Ink has a great photo for inspiration.  Here they are:



Love that sketch and I decided to pull those fun colors from the photo.  Here is my card:


I am still excited about the Shine On DSP and had to use it for this card.  I love the combo of the bright colors and the Kraft paper.  Here is a close up of the sentiment:


I used the Basic Black Archival Ink for a bold image on the DSP.  Check out those balloons:


I used Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, and Blushing Bride.  Notice there are more than four balloons.  I stamped twice after only inking up my balloon stamp once to get different shades of the darker colors.  I also coated each balloon with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.  That is a must have!  Here is the inside:


I had an extra balloon for the inside and added some of the In Color Washi Tape which is a Hostess Item in the Occasions Catalog.  Below is a shopping list.  Thanks for checking out my card:
