Stamp-Off: Balloon Challenge

Yippee-Skippee it's time for another challenge with
my wonderful & talented friends Buffy and Susan.

Today, we are challenging ourselves to use balloons.
SU is offering 3-4 new balloon sets, so we can pick our fav.

I really like Balloon Builders set on page 14 of the Occasions Mini.  Paired with the Balloon Bouquet Punch on page 13, 
it allows you to make balloons in a snap.   Balloon Builders
also enables you to make balloon animals!
In this sample, I created a bunch of balloons, in 2 different
sizes and 3 colors (Crumb Cake, Pacific Point and Mossy
Meadow), keeping it kind of masculine.   Obviously changing up
the colors would create cards for many different events.
I wanted to create a balloon wreath.
I stamped my sentiment in the center of a 2 1/2 inch
circle and layered the balloons, starting with the 4 larger ones.
Once assembled, I positioned the balloon wreath over a
strip of Mossy Meadow, embossed with the 
Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.
I could have raised balloons on dimensionals, 
but was sort of concerned about 
positioning so arranged them as shown.
Now, please hop on over to check out what
Buffy and Susan have done with our balloon challenge!
