Party Balloons

It's our first challenge at Double D for 2022
and it's also our SIXTH year for our challenge
so we are celebrating with a theme of PARTY BALLLOONS! 

I created this fun and colorful mood board below to inspire!

I purchased The Greetery Balloon Bouquet stamp and Big Balloon die set
with this mood board in mind.  I have had it for quite a while
and it was s hard to not use it before this challenge, but I held strong LOL!

I also used a fun die from The Greetery Twisted Crepe, this die will come in
very handy for birthday and celebration cards and I love the uniqueness
well, what isn't to love about ALL The Greetery products, they ROCK!!

The inks I used were all Altenew ink cube sets Sweet Dreams for the blues
and Green Fields for the greens.
I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Party Mix Jewels for sparkle!

Take a peek at Double D to see all the awesome balloon cards
the Design Team has created, lots of inspiration there!

Entering the following challenges:
AAA Birthday ... Two Favorite Colors (teal and green)
NBUS .... Never before used schtuff
Word Art Wednesday .... Anything Goes
Watercooler Wednesday .... All things Feminine

love this stamp and die set and the colors that you used are so pretty! Gives me some ideas for another card. Good talk this morning, I was thinking that we should face time or do a team zoom time. That would be fun.
