Celebrate Baby

It's Monday and time for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!!  We have a really fun sketch this week, check it out.

Isn't this a super cute design!   I used Celebrate Today for my card, the balloon takes the place of the square in the sketch.

I love how this turned out, a very sweet baby card!  I pulled inspiration from the Lullaby Designer Series Paper and used Coastal Cabana for my card base.  Two different designs of the designer paper made up the stripes and balloon.

The card base has stars sponged in Coastal Cabana with the star decorative mask.  I also used Coastal Cabana for the bunting across the balloon.  It was so easy to make since there is a matching set of framelits for Celebrate today, so no fussy cutting!

I added a few Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper stars that were made with the Star Confetti Punch.  I also added a tail to the balloon with Coastal Cabanana thick bakers twine.

I ended up liking this design so much, that I made a second card using Crisp Cantaloupe as my base color.

I did the same design except I replaced the stars with hearts and added pearls to this card in place of small punch outs.

I hope you are feeling inspired and join the challenge with me!  Just go to Techno Stamper for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.

I love both of these cards, Nicole! I especially like how you curled up the end of the balloon "string"—gives it a whimsical look :)

Super cute, love how you did the balloon string. I have such a hard time using balloons on cards??Not sure why, these are super cute. Great job!
