Let Your Dreams Take Flight

I combined three challenges for today's card. 
The color challenge at Colour Me...! 
a limited supply challenge at StampNation.  
and a 
3 of something challenge at Top Tip Tuesday 
The colors are blushing bride, pistachio
pudding, rose red and a neutral. The limited supplies are
one stamp set, three ink pads (perfect with the color challenge),
and one type of embellishment. The 3 of something is the
3 balloons, the 3 enamel dots and the 3 colors.

I used all three colors on the greeting. I was trying to make it 
look like the row of colors on the blanket in the inspiration photo.
 I don't think I've ever used my pistachio pudding ink pad. 
Here is my tip for Top Tip Tuesday - I swiped 
the pad on some pistachio pudding card stock for a bit of a darker 
shade. I didn't have any rose red card stock so I swiped the ink pad
on some whisper white. This is a great way to always have
matching card stock!

For the limited supplies challenge I used the three colors from
the color challenge, the Balloon Builders stamp set from Lil' Inkers,
and for the embellishments I used some homemade enamel dots.
I did use my markers to draw the lines on the balloons so I strayed
a little bit from the challenge - oops.

Also, thank you to CM for pointing out that this card fits the
number challenge at STAMPlorations I will be submitting
it there as well.

all from Stampin' Up! unless noted
card stock: whisper white
stamp set: balloon builders (Lil' Inkers)
ink: rose red, pistachio pudding, blushing bride
embellishments: homemade enamel dots

Happy Stampin'
