My Favorite Things Card Sketch #156

My LAST post for today was for the My Favorite Things Card Sketch Challenge #156. I used the sketch below for my card.

Isn't this fun? I got to use all sorts of fun My Favorite Things dies and stamps to make the card too!!

Here is what I created:

I first die cut the word balloon out of white card stock and then used MFT's "Abstract Art" stamp with their Orange Fizz and Limeade ink to create the fun splatters all over it. Next I cut a piece of Limeade card stock into a 4" by 5 1/4" piece, embossed it using a PTI cover plate and adhered it to a white card.

Next I used my Silhouette machine to die cut the "celebrate" sentiment out of black card stock. I was then a bit stumped on what I wanted to do. I wanted to use the paper strip element over the balloon as in the sketch but did not have any more orange patterned paper and did not own any of the orange fizz paper. Instead, I cut a strip of PTI Orange Zest card stock and stamped a pattern in Orange Fizz ink using the chevron arrow from MFT's "Right This Way"stamp set. 

I then assembled the card, using foam adhesive on the word balloon and the paper strip to give it a little bit of dimension. I again thought it needed "something" more so I went through my embellishments and pulled out some wood veneer stars and some white sequins. I randomly adhered them over the card using glossy accents and then covered the stars with orange and green Stickles. Below are a couple close ups of the card:

I really like how this card came out after all this work. I especially love these two colors together. Anything with orange is a favorite with me!!

Thank you for looking at all my posts today. Have a great day!!
