Lift Your Spirits

Hey, y'all, how's your morning going?  I had book club last night so I was up way past my bedtime.  It was fun though and that's only once a month...okay so I stay up past my bedtime more than once a month but you know what I mean!

I'm taking a break from red and green and Christmas cards today to bring you this:

I found this color challenge at As You See It and it's different from anything I've done lately so I just had to play along, and the hot air balloons in Lift Me Up seemed like the perfect choice to go with these colors:

I paired that with the Global Design Project's CASE the Designer challenge:

I kept the layout from the inspiration card, but used some patterned paper with torn edges for the panel behind the main image.  That stripey paper is retired, but I had a scrap of just the right size and I just loved those uplifting stripes with the hot air balloons.

Ryan's awake and moving around, so I'd better go grab him and feed us both breakfast.  Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Lift Me Up
Ink:  Pool Party, Pacific Point, Flirty Flamingo
Paper:  Pool Party, Thick Whisper White, retired Pacific Point DSP
Accessories:  Up & Away Thinlits, gold metallic accents, Dimensionals

What a great use of the colours, Christy! They seem naturally suited for this stamp set and you did such a beautiful job of showcasing them. I like the way you used the Flirty Flamingo for emphasis in the sentiment. It certainly lifted my spirits this morning! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenge!

These are perfect colours for this card! It looks absolutely fabulous. I like the striped edge to your main panel. It leads the eye in to the balloons and sentiment. Thanks for joining us again at As You See It.
