The Artful Stampers Blog Hop #68

Welcome from Nicole's blog.
This week we have a Colour Challenge.

This is what we had to work with:

This is what I came up with:

Once again I have used items from the new Occasions Catalogue. There are just so many lovely items in there that I had to try and be very self controlled, I am not sure that I tried hard enough though. The Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and the Balloon Bouquet Punch can be purchased as a bundle where you save 15% so is a very good deal. I have been waiting for Stampin' Up! to have a balloon punch for long time and think that the one they came up with is pretty good as it has two different balloon sizes in one punch and is very versatile. I can assure you that it will be used often.

Gorgeous Balloon Card :-)

I love how you have used the colours to give a muted look rather than the bright look that this combination would generally provide.
