Cloud Nine Birthday

A lovely sketch from CAS Colours and Sketch's as their challenge #318 led me back to an old favourite, the 'Lift Me Up' Suite from Stampin' Up! I used two of the colours from Paper Craft Crew's 'Mystery Colour' challenge PPC334 - Coastal Cabana and Poppy Parade - and added Balmy Blue.
There's something about making a card with the sky in it that makes me feel good!

Ingredients: Stampin' Up card, (Balmy Blue, Whisper White), ink (Stazon Black, Memento Black), Lift Me Up stamps, dies (Rectangle Stitched, Up & Away), watercolour pencils (Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue), blender pen, Lift Me Up DSP.
Other: Derwent Inktense watercolour pencil in Poppy Red.


  1. Cute idea to use the balloons and clouds for the sketch. Thank you for joining us for this week's CC&S challenge.

  2. Great card! Perfect use of the sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  3. Such a great card using such a great set. I think the stripe down the side really brings everything together. Balmy Blue works well as a neutral, just as Soft Sky did.

  4. Great interpretation of the sketch. Thanks for playing along with us at CAS Colours & Sketches. Looking forward to seeing your creative projects in the future galleries again.
