FMS#67 & Color Challenge

I had so much fun making this card! I used one of the brand new, not yet released, Stamp Of the Month's from CTMH to stamp the hot air balloons.

The hot air balloons were cut with the coordintng shape on the Cricut Artiste Cartridge. The Olive scallop border was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge set at 1". To add some extra depth I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on Crystal Blue Cardstock and finished it off with some Silver Shimmer Trim. I also added Licorice Gems to the front balloon for some extra bling!

The card design is based on Freshly Made Sketch #67 and the color combo is courtesy of Create: Cards Blog Challenge.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Colonial White Cardstock, Olive Cardstock, Grey Flannel Cardstock, Olive Cardstock
 Stamps: Party Pennants, My Sunshine (April 2013 SOTM)
 Ink: Olive, Crystal Blue, Grey Wool, Black
Other: Shimmer Trim, Licorice Opaques Gems, Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artiste, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder, Sizzix Big Shot, 3D Foam Tape
