Baby Balloon Bouquet

Hi there!  This week, Creative Inspirations Paints has a challenge about "Balloons."  I pulled out a Stampin' Up! set that I have barely used, Crazy for Cupcakes, and found a balloon there.

I used the masking technique to create my bouquet, and when I was finished with the masks, I stuck them to the inside of the stamp case, for another time.

Sometimes it's tricky to get a good photo of the beautiful shimmer.  The pink balloon doesn't look like it does in real life.  It's not quite this bright and intense:

The curlicue border and sentiments are SRM stickers that I won recently.  This is the first time I've ever used  SRM.  I love the stuff!

Hope you get a chance to play with us!  Thanks for visiting with us today.  :-)
