Am I allowed

to say I LOVE THIS CARD?! Well, I did, so there's no taking it back now. I love this card. I love the stamps. I love the dimension. I had a blast with it and I'm not going to deny it any longer!

Stamps: Verve Party Time
Paper: White, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, So Saffron, Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, So Saffron
Accessories: Real Red Ribbon, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch
Techniques: Paper Tole

My newest Verve order arrived while I was in Banff and this was the first chance I'd had to ink up these awesome little balloons from Party Time. I used the SCS Color Challenge 138, which was Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and So Saffron, along with Mercy's Sketch 40. She's always got great sketches and this one was no exception.

I've really been loving the paper tole since I tried it for Dawn's Challenge on the Taylored Expressions 2nd Birthday Bash, so I had to use it for this set. The red ballon & tricolor balloon were both colored a second time and layered. The tricolor balloon was then colored a third time and layered - such fun!

 Here's one more of the layers.....because....I love this card!

Okay - so you know what I think....what do YOU think? Ever have one of those cards that just "works" for you?
