Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #321

A speedy card for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I bought the Party Balloons Stamp & Thins Cuts from CTMH with plans to use it in my Spring Card Workshop, and it got cut from the lineup due to "too many ideas and not enough cards!"  But it seemed like the right choice for this weeks AHSC.

Using the pretty watercolour striped paper from the True Love Paper Packet as my background I thin cut the balloons, string, bow and sentiment banner in White Daisy, Ballerina, Sage, and Mint cardstocks.  All stamping was done using Sapphire Ink.  A bitty sparkle for my bow and a few careful swipes of Clear Shimmer Brush on my balloons finished my cards.  I say careful swipes because both the Shimmer Brush and Sapphire Ink are waterbased which will make the ink run, so I only painted the cardstock and not the ink!

Close to My Heart really does make it quick and easy!  Thank you for stopping by, and I appreciate your comments, I hope I have inspired you to come to play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
