Less is More - Week 86 - Recipe

Hi again - just a quick post today with another card made for the current Less is More challenge of
 Take 3 Challenges

For this card I've used an 8" square scalloped base and Penny Black "In the Air" stamp set.  I stamped the main image in Barn Door DI and clear embossed it.  I then die cut it using my heart nesties  after first making sure the extra balloons were outside the cut area.  This was mounted on a red scalloped base.  I masked off the balloons and sponged some DI for the sky.  Popped up with silicone gel on a red and white mat with some gingham (yehaa) ribbon.  The white mat was scored diagonally using my SU Simply Scored board.  The sentiment was stamped, clear embossed and cut using my SU Modern Label punch.  It was shaped slightly and popped onto the card using silicone gel and a couple of gems added.

Thanks for visiting today - it's been lovely to see you.

PS  In my haste to post I totally forgot to tell you which  challenges this belongs to!!!!  Week 28 - Use ink, Week 29 - Things that move and Week 36 - Hearts
