OWH Midweek Throwdown x3 card challenge

This week's MWT is to use 3 of something on a card. I decided to make this cute birthday card using some fun balloon die cuts. And since I used different sizes and shapes of balloons, this card also works for the OWH Design Bootcamp Variety is the Spice of Life.

paper - My Mind's Eye - Blink of an Eye
scalloped oval - Spellbinders
balloon and banner die cuts - Lil' Inker Designs
stamp - Lil' Inker Designs
stitched rectangle die cut - Lil' Inker Designs
twine - Hemptique
Versafine ink

I also participated in the Cards in Envy challenge to Make Your Own Background. I used an embossing folder to make a cute cloud background to match my patterned paper. It doesn't show in the picture, but I added Glossy Accents to the blue stars to give them a little shine.

The third card I made is for the Flutter by Wednesday sketch challenge. I did change it from a square card to an A2 size.

  4. Nice job on all of these Kristie but I have to say the airplanes are my fav. I have always loved plane/travel themed stuff. Love the embossing folder too... you can't ever have too many and that;s one I don't yet have :)
