CAS on Sunday - Balloons

Another day at the gym...more stationary bike.  I have to see about getting my bike fixed soon. Hoping that I can ride again in another few weeks, but the bike needs to be fixed soon.  And they had to cut off my favorite bicycling shirt, so need to find a new favorite!

Time for another challenge over at CAS on Sunday.  The theme for this challenge is Balloons!  Super fun lots of fun things to do with this theme.  I focused on using a new die cut set that I haven't had a chance to use yet.  Here's what I came up with!

I started by creating a mask for my balloons.  I then used distress ink to apply color, in rainbow order. Ensuring that I had applied a bit of the darker color on the bottom and used a lighter color on top.

I then die cut my took me awhile to figure out what color to use...yellow, red, green...finally I settled on teal.  I added a bit of distress ink to the sentiment for a bit of dimension.

I thought I was done at this point, but it looked a little empty so I added some mini stars and teal confetti.

Here's a close up....this is a flat card for easy mailing!

Hope to see what you come up with!



  1. Gorgeous card, Susan. I looooove the bright colours and the sentiment. Hopefully your bike is fixed soon and that you can go out cycling again. I can imagine that you miss it. Luv, Wilma
