The challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare this week is to use the following Close To My Heart colors: Sky, Buttercup and Blush (you may substitute a similar color if you don't have these CTMH colors). My first cousin just joined the "grandmother club" and I used these colors to make her a congratulations card. I also added the neutral color Grey Wool (retired CTMH). The balloons were cut using the Artiste cartridge (page 70 accent 3 at 1.75") and mounted onto White Daisy CS. A little bit of Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel was added to the cutout portion of each balloon. The balloon strings were stamped with the accessory stamps that come with the Artiste package. (If you are a cricut lover and you don't have Artiste or Art Philosophy yet you should seriously consider making this purchase from my website here.) The "Congrats" greeting is also from the Artiste stamp collection. I used a very old D.O.T.S. wooden stamp called Daisy Sprinkle to fill in some of the white space on the panel (and also to cover up a grey wool smudge!).
