Let them eat cake!!

When I showed today's card to my son, he asked if any of my French relatives knew anyone named Marie (for Marie Antoinette) and so...that's how the title of the post came about - LOL!

Today's card is SERIOUSLY cute (if I do say so myself) though I may have gone a little bit crazy with my favourite colour - PINK!!


When I first saw the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper in the 2016-2017 annual catalogue, I was pretty sure Stampin' UP! was inside my head! How else could they know I would be that excited over paper?

Today's card is all about the pink...with a teeny tiny nod to Bermuda Bay.


I started off with a piece of Basic Black that was laying around from some other things I was working and added a layer from the Pop of Pink DSP. Then I stuck on some Pop of Pink Washi Tape and punched a hole to add the Whisper White Baker's Twine.


Next up was the focal point of the card - balloons and banner! I started off with the Basic Black piece of DSP and added a layer of Whisper White. I stamped and punched the balloons using Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay Ink and then punched a third balloon from one of the gold embossed pieces of DSP in the Pop of Pink Pack. The baker's twine was attached with a glue dot and then Stampin' Dimensionals were added to pop them up.

The sentiment was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals too and I tied the balloon strings with another piece of baker's twine.

On the inside, I repeated the washi tape and added some doodling with my Melon Mambo marker.
