Lift Me Up Challenge Card

I enjoy sketch challenges, and this Fab Friday Stampin Challenge
is a really great one!  I like the simplicity of it!
I also added components of the Paper Craft Crew 
Tic Tac Toe Challenge, following a diagonal line that included Shabby Chic, Crumpled paper and Collage.

 The colors for this card include Tempting Turquoise,
Sweet, Sugarplum, Soft Suede and Whisper White.
I used DSP from the Festive Birthday pack on page 173
for the clouds and balloon.  The banner was trimmed with
the Banner Triple Punch on page 186.

I used the bottom portion of the balloon die from the
Up & Away Thinlits Dies on page 10 of the Occasions catalog,
under the sentiment. 
 I stamped the clouds and cupcake frosting on the 
Soft Suede, then spritzed it with water, crumpled it and
then dried it.   I hadn't done that technique in a while and
had forgotten how much I like that look.

What a cute crumpled background, and cool element to "avoid" a doily, lol. Very sweet! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

What a great card Jackie! I love that the background looks like old, worn leather. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew! Christyne - DT.

Fun texture on your card with the crumpled paper. And I like how you used the die cut for that part of our sketch! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

I clicked on the photo to see the details - very cool how you stamped the clouds on the background paper, then wet & crumpled it, Jackie! I've only done that technique making flowers - I'll have to be brave like you & try it for a background :) Love how you used the balloon die cut instead of a doily - very creative. So glad you joined our Paper Craft Crew challenge this week - I hope you'll join us again soon! ~Deborah
