MFT Color Challenge #14

I love the combo for this week's color challenge!

I used the Peekaboo Polka Dots on the top and bottom of my focal layer. I popped up the layer in the middle with the sentiment and flower spray.  Here's a closer look at some fancy fussy cutting I did to make the flourish look like it's behind the words:

Thanks for stopping by!



I just love the envelope die that goes along with You've Got Mail, so I used it for this week's sketch.  The flower is from Blueprints 19, and I sponged some ink on the petal edges.

Thanks for stopping by!



It's time for SYSC! 
Your challenge is to make something inspired by this picture:
I chose to focus on the patterns and style of one of the balloons.
I stamped the sun rays (Up, Up, and Away) in turquoise on my main panel, then added a darker panel to the top that I stamped dots in white on (Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2).  I cut a piece of kraft cs for the sentiment, stamped the words (Birthday Balloon), then rounded the top with one of the Stitched Border Trio dies. I then mounted my main panel on a base. The flags were cut using a Tremendous Triangles die, then layered on. Rhinestones finish it off.
You can find all the details about joining in this challenge HERE.
All stamps and dies from Clearly Whimsy.

I had fun doing some layering with my die cutting for this week's sketch challenge.  I used grout gray along with a few colors of green and blue, and tucked a yellow star under my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my hop card:

 I started by stamping and cutting out the kites (Up, Up, and Away), placing them on my base, and stamping the strings and bows. I attached the kites, popping up the highest one.  I white embossed the sentiment (Up, Up, and Away Sentiments) on a dark blue strip and layered a flag stamped with the checks from Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2. I selectively inked "a little note" from Thanks A Million and stamped it above the flag.  I put a candy dot in the center of each kite and a strip of rhinestones under the sentiment to finish off the card.
