CASology is a new challenge blog to me, but they are actually having their 5 year anniversary! I had fun hopping around on their blog hop yesterday, and I made this balloon-themed card to participate! I immediately thought of a hot-air balloon when I saw the balloon cue-card, so I cut this polka-dotted one from the Artiste Cricut cartridge.
I used the garden/bug theme and colors from Cupcake Inspirations, and the bug theme also fit well with the challenge from Shopping our Stash, another new-to-me challenge blog.
To make this card, I got out my ink pads that fit with the Cupcake colors, and then I got out all my stamp sets that had cute little bugs on them. I stamped the flower field in Sweet Leaf, then the bugs in Pixie, Gypsy, Canary, and Crystal Blue. I stamped the balloon from the My Sunshine stamp set, but decided to layer it with a Cricut cut using Brushed paper instead. The White Daisy panel was affixed to a Crystal Blue card base.
Come have fun with us and play along with these wonderful challenges!
