I love this week's color challenge, it's full of fresh, vibrant colors that make me happy. I love color! I decided to step outside my comfort zone with the card size and made a non-traditional card at 3 1/2" x 6". The beauty of having the envelope maker is the freedom to play around with different card sizes.
I created the background for this card using my new Pacific Point watercolor pencil that came with this month's "A Sara Thing" Paper Pumpkin kit and then just layered several balloons and clouds on top.
A few days ago during a YouTube binge marathon, I stumbled across the video below. I don't have the stamp set (yet), but I do have the embossing folders. I used my Happy folder along with my Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to achieve a similar effect with the birthday card below.
Check out the video below and my own card version. Hope this gives you a little inspiration this Monday!
