CAS(E) this Sketch #117, CAS Colours & Sketches #118 & Paper Players #239

My spring break seems to be flying by! There were so many things I wanted to get done, but I'm wondering where all the time is going. Doesn't go that quickly when we're working, does it?

I wanted to make a card for a couple of challenges, so this is what I came up with. The die cut panel was created with Mama Elephant Femme Frames and Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 dies. I used micropore tape to hold the panel in place on my card base, so I could stamp a balloon in each opening. Three different green inks were used to stamp the balloons; Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. The sentiment, from the adorable Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set, was also inked in Peeled Paint. I adhered the panel to the card base with foam tape.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:

     CAS Colours & Sketches #118: Colours - monochromatic shades of green
     The Paper Players Challenge #239 - to "die" for

As always, thank you for stopping by. Enjoy!



  1. How sweet your framed balloons card is, Pam! Marvelous take on the sketch and colour challenges! I just finished my card for the sketch and it's 'this close' to not making the cut...grrrr! I'll give it some 'pondering' time overnight; maybe the light of day will see it 'spared' the recycle bin. If I share it, you'll definitely notice...it's laughable!

  2. Loving that window die cut with all the little balloons stamped behind. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

  3. I like the dimension you've given this card, looking through the window frame at the balloons. Thanks for joining in our color challenge at CC&S!
