Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #240

Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week has started well!  I am in full camp prep mode here and am cutting up a storm getting projects ready for our 40 campers my friend Julie and I will have in our elective.  Our camp will have about 800 kids but thankfully we only have 40 who have chosen to spend their morning or afternoon with us!  We have about 20+ projects to get ready and have only a month left!

We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches and I have the privilege of being this week's hostess!  Such stress!  It's always hard to come up with a sketch and you'll never know how it will go over!
I needed a birthday card this week so I decided to use some of the Cherry On Top DSP stack to create this card!  I decided to use a ballon too!  I used some silver ink to put the little stars on the balloon.  Unfortunately they don't really show up in the photo!  I added a little sequin tail and called it a day!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White
DSP: Cherry on Top DSP Stack
Stamps: Celebrate Today
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Stazon Black, Silver
Other: Balloon Framelits, Bermuda Bay Sequins, Stitched Square Dies (Lil' Inkers), White Baker's Twine, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll pop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out what the Design Team has created for your inspiration!  I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!
