Twine and combined challenges

My order from The Twinery arrived. It made me so happy. I can see myself using twine a lot in the future.

This card was made for two challenges. a colour challenge put forth by ColourQ, and a sketch challenge over at Pals Paper Arts.

I loved the colours over at ColourQ this week. I don't feel like I did them justice though. Then again, who else but Martha Stewart can make a bunch of stacked dishes look awesome?

Unfortunately, I don't have any Certainly Celery in my collection... I used Old Olive instead.

It's Your Birthday
 (CQC102 & PPA111)

No supplies were harmed in the making of this card!
Cardstock :: Whisper White (SU), Old Olive (SU), Tempting Turquoise (SU),
Basic Gray (SU), Poppy Parade (SU)
Paper :: Plaid from "All About Boys" series (DCWV)
Stamps :: "Its your birthday" (Hero Arts)
Ink :: Poppy Parade (SU)
Embellishments :: Honeydew twine (The Twinery)
Tools :: Balloon punch (MS), 1 1/2 Circle punch (Marvy), Dimensionals (SU)

I'm disappointed I didn't do something a little "extra" with that strip of Old Olive (like add a scallop edge or something). I blame post-pregnancy brain on that oversight! :)



  1. What a fun birthday card! Love the twine around the balloons. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

  2. Love your rendition of the sketch challenge! Very creative use of balloons! And I like the piece of the old olive card stock without any additional punching... :)

  3. Very cute birthday card. Love the balloons. Thank you for playing along with Pals Paper Arts.
