Dynamic Duos......Birthday Balloons

Happy Saturday Peeps!

Today over on Dynamic Duos we have a great new color challenge for you:

I started looking through my stamp sets to find one to use with these colors and pulled out this great set from Stampin Up called "Up, Up and Away. I love this set but have rarely used it, so it was due for some "ink love".
I stamped one hot air balloons with Cherry cobbler and one with Pool Party and then used my markers for the third one. I die cut a circle with my nesties and stamped the hot air balloon bases and then embossed using the cloudy Day EF. I cut out the balloons and added them to the embossed piece with some dimensionals  I then used a scallop circle nestie to mat the main image piece.

The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler and then I used a layer of white and and then some Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed with the perfect dots EF.
The DSP on here is from the Sycamore Street pack and I added a white scallop strip across the bottom of the designer paper. The main panel is added with dimensionals to the base. I used a sentiment from the same set and stamped with black onto a scrap of white and punched out with my 1 inch circle punch and then used cherry cobbler with my 1-1/4 inch circle punch to mat the sentiment. 
No ribbon and no pearls! 
Be sure and hop on over to the Dynamic Duos Challenge Blog
to see what the rest of the team did with these colors.
Thanks for stopping by and
