Saturday Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge!  Here is the sketch Carol gave us.  I tweaked it just a bit.  ;)  I needed a masculine birthday card, and here is the final outcome.   Not too bad.  

I started with a Night of Navy card base and a Cherry Cobbler mat.  I stamped the balloon from Crazy for Cupcakes in Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White several times using the masking technique.  The balloons were colored with Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight markers.  The background was made by using the Color Spritzer tool and the same markers.  The Cherry Cobbler balloon was cut out of cardstock and adhered with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from Punch Bunch (SAB) and was stamped twice, once in Cherry Cobbler and once in Night of Navy.  I cut out the Cherry Cobbler center and glued it on the Night of Navy piece.  That was punched with the Scallop Square punch and adhered with dimensionals.

Tell me what you think then head on over to Jeannette's blog to see what she did with the sketch.  The team is linked together, so you can travel around or you can go back to the UDI blog if any of the links are broken.

Enjoy your weekend!  I hope all you Northerners are staying safe and warm!  I guess I shouldn't tell you that it's been in the 70s all week here in Tampa.  ;)
