CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #211

It's a color challenge at the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge as well as my third week as a Guest Designer.  And, it's another birthday card.  I have quite a few birthdays coming up so it was time to get some more cards done and ready to send.

Balloons are always good for birthdays.  I cut two balloons out of the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack and one from the 2016-18 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack using the Hearts Balloons Dies from My Favorite Things.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella over the balloons for a subtle shimmer.  They sure are bright and cheerful in the Cucumber Crush, Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder colors.

The card base is Whisper White Thick and attached a layer of Whisper White onto a layer of Watermelon Wonder.  The strings for the balloons were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The sentiment is also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and is from the Beautiful You stamp set.  I popped up the balloons with some Stampin' Dimensionals.
