Festive Friday Challenge #1

Hey there! Well it's here - the first  Festive Friday Challenge! This week it's all about Valentines day cards.

Now normally I dont make or send out Valentines day cards, but if I do, I generally only make one for Hubby. So that's how I came to this colour combo of soft suede, garden green, whisper white and I must admit I really like it - not too 'girly'! I also wanted to try and challenge myself to use items and stamp sets which I've bought months or even years ago and haven't really used them. I coloured the bottom of the hot air balloon with chocolate chip, old olive, garden green and certainly celery markers. I used a circle treat cup and filled it with yellow M & M's just to try and add more colour to it. The clouds were created using my small scallop circle punch, cutting off the bottoms and glueing straight onto the white - you could also use the top of the cupcake punch. The sentiment is stamped in garden green. I really liked the end result. So why not pop on over to Nicole's blog, find some inspiration, link your card up and join in on the fun!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

* All items used are Stampin' Up.
