 hello fellow stampers!

Today I have a card made for the 200th game over at AAA cards. Wow, that's quite an achievement - congrats to the AAA team for the awesome challenges! Keep up the great work!

Also entering the card with the lovely people at Less is More who have a colour challenge this fortnight: #453 Purple and Yellow

What's a celebration without balloons?

I started by separately blending wilted violet and scattered straw distress oxide inks, then cut out the circles for the balloons using a punch. I fussy cut 2 little tabs for the balloon tails and adhered black and white bakers twine to the back. The balloons were popped up on foam squares. The sentiment was stamped with memento tuxedo black and versamark using my Misti, then heat embossed with clear so it's nice and shiny, then was adhered to a black strip for an outline. This was popped up with foam squares also. The little white balloon 'shine' were cutouts from a diecut left in my scraps.

Thanks for stopping by!
