Celebrate With Balloons


It's celebration time at The Paper Players in honour of their 300th challenge, so I thought I'd blow up a few balloons to help the celebrations along.  The middle one must be a foil helium balloon, judging by its crinkly edges ;)


I've used the colour scheme from Uniko Studio's photo challenge, along with Uniko Studio stamps.  You have to look hard for the grey on the blue balloon, but it's there.


And because I've used three or more colours (Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Evergreen Bough, Hickory Smoke) I'm playing along with Virginia's View where it's All About Colour.


My inspiration came from this gorgeous card by Maria.  Cheers, dear :)

  13. I love the slightly watercoloured effect on your balloons; your sharp white diecut sentiment works perfectly with them. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week for our 300th celebrations!
