August Card Chain Challenge

Hello There -

This month I went with three of the options at the Card Chain Challenge.  There are usually about 5-6 options each month, so its easy to pick.

I went with: 


 and Sketch

I colored on some white card stock before die cutting the MFT balloons.  I added a bit of shading and some wink of stella at the end.  I chose a black card base for drama and it looks good with the stripes. After laying down the bases, I added the balloons. The sentiment was adhered with foam dots. The black and white stripes are also from MFT as well as the greeting.  

My cheery and colorful card is going to Chris this month, I haven't sent her a card before - so I hope she likes it.  If you'd like to sign up for September's Challenge, please visit here.

Thanks so much for visiting.
