Love balloons

(Sorry for the picture quality. Was in a bit of a rush to send it in to a Stamptv challenge and my usual photo-place, the kitchen, was still sticky from having a liter of orange juice poured over the floor thanks to my 2 year old)
I decided to do a CAS card with hand-cut heart balloons. I tinted their edges slightly with Aged Mahogany. I also didn't want to go with the traditional pink/red colours but used my paper scraps stash that included some neutrals and greens :D
This is also the first card I made using twine from The Twinery!
Sentiment: GinaK Designs "Bold and Beautiful"

I'm entering this into:


  1. Fabulous CAS card, love those balloons.

Veels Geluk dimensions

This card was made for a friend of my mother's.  "Veels Geluk" means congratulations in Afrikaans. The letters were die-cut ...
