Twofer Card Challenge #12

I always look forward to the Twofer Challenge.  It makes me think about design and different ways to use my stamps and dies.  This month's prompt is
I pulled out my SSS dies and went looking for paper.  I found some leftovers of Brusho and alcohol ink backgrounds and they became my balloons.
The cheer card on the left uses the alcohol ink scrap.
I also found the already cloud embossed panel and added a die cut cloud heat embossed with the Stampendous sentiment.  You can see the shine better here.
How lucky was it that I actually had three small Brusho pieces in primary colors perfect for a birthday card.
I tied button thread to each and then using a needle punched through the letters on the PTI sentiment.  The top two are foam mounted.

This was such a fun challenge and I can't wait to see what next month brings.

And your birthday card has so much going on with those balloons, yet it remains lovely and CAS. How smart are you to thread the strings beneath your panel?! Why haven't I ever thought of that???!!! Great card again! Thanks so very much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge!! xoxo Bev

  7. The shimmery AI balloon is fantastic in that cloudy background, Bobby ... love that you used the cloud die cut for the sentiment! A delicious trio of brusho balloons on your birthday card ... the brusho's make them look all texture-y ... and what great touch with the threaded strings!

  8. Love your fun balloons, Bobby! A great idea to lift someone's spirits! I need to remember that. Button thread makes a perfect string. I need to remember that too.
