Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you.  The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

The lovely Sally Shaw designed our sketch this month and here it is:

 I thought I'd be a bit rebellious this month and use balloons instead of circles! Here's my take on the sketch

Lift me up stampcset, Up and Away thinlet dies, Carried Away DSP

I used the Lift me up stamp set and stamped the two smaller balloons in Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach and then die cut them out using the Up and Away thinlit dies. I used the Carried Away DSP for the banners. I used the sentiment from the Lift me up Stamp set. I finished the card off with some clouds and some Wink of Stella. 

Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Hope your day is on cloud nine, happy birthday, Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

I'm rather pleased with the finished card and I hope you like it too.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Don't forget to use the buttons below to continue hopping.

Until next week

    1. Thanks Sally, it was a fabulous sketch so thanks for that too xx

  3. Lovely card, not colours I would have put together but they work really well, think I will have to try your colour combo myself x

    1. Thanks Lynn, I'm not usually very confident at different colour combinations so this was a big step outside my comfort zone. Look forward to seeing what you create xx
