SFYTT - Birthday Balloons

Today's Sketch For You To Try is an amazing one.  I had one vision in my head when I started.  That didn't work out, but I like what I did come up with:

I cut my own bracket out of chipboard using the Top Note Die by repositioning it and running it through my Big Shot twice.  I covered the bracket with Fresh Snow ink to make it stand out against the red and Kraft color palette

I stamped the balloons from Sock Monkey and cut them out.  I added a little bit of shine with a prisma pencil in white and hand drew the strings with a thin point Sharpie.

I love the bright orange with the red too .. its sort of summer cheery and autumn happiness all bundled together

Thanks for stopping by!
