Eclectic Ellapu November: Balloons, Banners or Bows

Hello November! It's time for another month-long challenge over at  Eclectic Ellapu.  Thank you so much for playing along with us last month. So many gorgeous entries! I hope you'll join us again this month.

As always the 2 teams - Pinks and Purples - are playing together, but in their respective sandpits. The Pinkies are playing with "Balloons, Banners or Bows" and the Purplies are doing "Altered Art".

For my card I threw in all three elements: Balloons AND Banners AND Bows to make this fun birthday card using stamps and dies by Clearly Besotted.

Here's a closer look at the card. The balloons are on foam tape for extra dimension. I inked the background with Salty Ocean Distress Ink on a piece of damp watercolour paper.When completely dry, I added little blobs of Baby Blue Liquid Pearls.

Seize The Birthday: AG Birthday
A Bit Moe Time To Craft #7: AG
Sweet Stampin: Des / Punches
Just Add Ink #286: Just add W - watercolour paper

  13. You managed to make a card featuring all elements but they're not overpowering each other, your card still has a nice clean feel. And I like your combo of pink and blue which in my opinion makes your card very 'unisex', I like that about a card....
