StampTV CSS Alumni Color Combo Blog Hop

Hello it is time for another StampTV CSS Alumni Blog Hop. For the hop Cheri challenged us to use yellow, white, gray and one other color.  Such a fun color challenge!  You should have arrived here from from the wonderful talented Cheri.  If you get lost along the way you can find the complete blog hop list on StampTV.  Here is my card.




 I used Up and Away illustrated by Theresa Momber.  I have to say I love this set and it has been sitting on my craft table waiting so patiently for me to ink it up.  I colored all three balloons and totally messed up on the large one so I decided to paper piece it and hide my boo boo.  I then masked off the balloons and sponged in some clouds.  I didn't want them to be really noticeable and in the process you can hardly see them.  Well there you have it a card I messed up pretty bad and yet with some creative coverups it came out okay.  I will also be entering this into Just Us Girls sketch challenge.

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, August 13.
Your last stop is the fabulously creative Betty.  Thank you for stopping by.
