Sending Birthday Wishes...

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Hi there! Every Wednesday when I go and check what the sketch challenge is for the day, I pray that it does not involve diagonal lines or triangles. I seriously think I have a phobia about diagonal lines on a card. Well, today this was the sketch challenge. I thought I would give it a try since there were so few layers. I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out so well. Oh! I flipped the sketch, which was not planned, but the sentiment placement is better this way.
I used the balloon strings from Everyday Button Bits, but cut ovals with patterned paper instead of using buttons. Click here to see another card I made using the same technique. I also adhered a little triangle of red paper under the oval to make a "balloon knot".


Hope you liked today's card! Thanks for visiting me today!

Great card! I have liked alot of the cards you've made lately, once we get this school routine down I need to start making time for myself to make cards again.
