Freshly Made Sketches #379

The lovely Judy Rozema created our versatile sketch this week. I saw the circle elements as balloons and pulled out Poppystamps Celebrations Balloon dies to pair with an older MFT Birthday Sentiments stamp set.

A trio of balloons are die cut after inking a panel with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. The largest balloon is partially stamped with the sentiment to fit on the sentiment panel.

After the sentiment panel is popped up on the gray embossed panel, the middle balloon is tucked behind it and a third is placed floating away near the top corner.

The Clean Team has terrific cards at Freshly Made Sketches. We hope you are inspired to play along with us!
