Project 339: A cheery balloon boy birthday



I wanted to make a birthday card for a new colleague that was fun but sophisticated. I don't know him that well and so I needed it to be cheerful without being overly personal.

I was intrigued by the CAS-ual Friday tic-tac-toe challenge and so I went for the bottom row: Enamel dots, no patterned papers, glitter:



The background colors are blended using Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers. The balloons are punched using a Stampin' Up punch from Claire. I added some blue twine to make them have some dimension.

Then to complete the tic tac toe and make it more cheerful I added some enamel dots and lots of little gold dots using glitter glue.

All in all I was really pleased with this, I started with no plan and it all came together really quickly. Love it when that happens.
