Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge #100

Hello Everyone,

I have always wanted to play along on one of the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenges--and this week I actually did!  :)

This week was special, WMS Sketch Challenge Blog is celebrating their 100th sketch!  Here it is, I thought it was such a fun sketch to try:

So I got to try out my latest WMS stamps . . . . this is for a family friend who is celebrating her promotion from elementary school next week.  I rotated the sketch (so the balloon would fit!) and then made the sentiment on my computer.  I was trying for a fun and happy card.

Happy Promotion Day!
Stamps:  Half Pint Heroines (WMS)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black, Teal Zeal (Memento)
Patterned Paper:  Echo Park
Cardstock:  Cool Caribbean (SU), Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Misc.  Ribbon, lace, Copic Markers

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  5. Hi Chris! What a happy card - I love it... "promotion day" that would make anyone as high as a kite! Love your fussy cut balloon and that big smiley face on the sweet girl inside. The cloud paper and sparkly ribbon are perfect for this!
