I've made this one for my son, Ben. I love the random circles from Free Spirit and use them often, particularly when I make cards for Ben. My boy is going through a rough patch at the moment, and it times like this when I wish that we lived closer, but as I can't be there in person, I'll send him a little note. I made the card base from Midnight Muse card, cut a panel in white onto which I stamped the circles. I saw Erin's card this morning; I loved it and thought I'd CASE it for Ben. I cut a panel of the text design paper adhered it to the card and then stamped on the hot air balloon. I stamped the balloon again onto coloured paper and card, then paper pieced the balloon and coloured the basket. I was going to use one of the heads from Half Pint Heroes to represent Ben, then I realised that Ben's hair is actually rather long and hangs over his face - so I used one of the face from Half Pint Heroines!!! These sets are so versatile! For the inside I simply stamped some of the circles - using the second and third impressions for a subtle look.
As well as using the Pajama Party Background challenge I used the following to make this card:
- The Paper Players - PP156 - for the layout
- Colour Q - cQc200 - for the colours
At the time of writing this post, the Colour Q challenge isn't up yet, but I saw the colours on LeAnn's blog this morning and just had to play with them - they are perfect for a guy card! I've had such playing along with the first Pajama Party challenges, and it isn't over yet. Each pajama party ends with a Bedtime Story - where we're given a sketch and that challenge is open until 5th August. Claire and the Design Team have made some fabulous inspiration cards - do check them out!!
That's all for now. See you soon!
