AAA Birthday Card Challenge


It is time for our next monthly AAA Birthday Card Challenge which, if you are like me, is a welcome excuse to take a break from making christmas cards :)  This month's theme is Balloons and Banners:

I decided to use this opportunity to ink up a few new stencils including Up and Away and Scenic Borders:

I inked up the main hot air balloon in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilised Amber and added some light pencil shading to add some depth to the colours.  I also used the cloud border to create the sky on this card.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Here are the stencils that I used which you can buy in store at

I shall also link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes.

I hope you like my card!

  1. That's a very clever way to use the code word Balloon(s) Fab card and inking. Thank you for having me as your guestdesigner.

  2. A totally different slant on the challenge theme and I think it's so clever. Love those new stencils too.
