Freshly Make Sketches #537

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #537!

Clean Team designer Judy Rozema has given us a really fun sketch this week! My design started with the circle element, where I knew I would be using a balloon and making a birthday card, but I kind of stalled out with what to do with the angled panel.

It was while playing around with a few ideas from Heather Hoffman's Day 4 Emboss Resist techniques from the Online Card Class, Spring Card Camp 2022, that an idea came together. 

The MFT Happy Birthday Text background stamp is clear embossed on a white panel and then the Taylored Expressions Big Bold Balloons stencil used to selectively add balloons over the text. You can see the magic as the text resists the ink.

An MFT Bitty Birthday sentiment is embossed on a black flag for contrast and the largest Poppystamps Celebration Balloons die cut is added to finish the card.

Check out the amazing Clean Team cards and play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

I'm linking this card to the Spring Card Camp 2022 Day 4 Gallery.
