Balloons :)

Hey all, hope you have had a good day. The weather here has been miserable, but because I'm that sorta kid, I {love} it! :)

Once I got in from uni I thought I would take an hours break from cramming my brain with stuff, and make a card to enter into a challenge or two :) By the time I had actually got round to making the card the light was fading, so I'm sorry about the quality of the picture.

I kinda wanted to go for a look that used subdued colours, with only hints of brightness. I'm not quite sure that this is what the card turned out like. Its ok all the same, I suppose.

I am planning on entering this card into two challenges:

Solid card stock: SU! - Naturals Ivory; Not Quite Navy; Bazzill - Kraft
Patterened paper: Crate Paper - Restoration 6x6
Stamp: Hero Arts - Monster Fun
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Ribbon: Gisela Graham 39545
Tools: WRMK - Corner Chomper; Fiskars - Apron Lace border punch; 3/4" Circle punch
Miscellaneous: white gel pen; Staedtler triplus fineliner - black

Thanks for stopping by!!

I best go get some food in me before darts. We are playing our clubs B team at home tonight. Oh. No. It is SOOO uncomfortable. You could slice the tension in a room with a butter knife!! Honestly. I have never ever seen such a competitive game. Ever. Yikes. I'll report back if we have a decent win!! {FINGERS CROSSED}


[Note:] Oh, I just wanna add, this is my first attempt at paper piecing, as simple as it might be! :) LOL.
