CRAZY for SWEET SUNDAY CHALLENGES

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Today's Sweet Sunday Sketch card uses the balloon image and sentiment from the stamp set, Crazy for Cupcakes, and the new designer paper from the 2010 Summer Mini Catalog, Island Oasis. The balloon image is stamped in Basic Black on to Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Rose Red, Old Olive, and Pumpkin Pie ... then cut out. The So Saffron and Old Olive balloons are raised up with Stampin' Dimensionals, and the Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie balloons are are raised up with a double layer of Stampin' Dimensionals. The balloon strings are drawn using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and ruler.

I always want to use these balloons and struggle with them for some reason. This is wonderful! I like the straight strings you've drawn. Adding the highlights with your gel pen was GENIUS! Oh, and how you used the sentiment around the balloon...so clever! Super card, Nancy!
