Up in the Air over CAS

I have really been getting into making CAS cards lately!  I whipped up this card in about 10 minutes while I was waiting on Brett to get ready to go get ice cream. :)  We should be saving our pennies for Convention in Salt Lake City but ice cream at the Magic Wand has just been calling our names lately. lol  This card is for the challenges at colourQ and Try Stampin' On Tuesday.
I don't have any Bermuda Bay ink yet so I had to go with Tempting Turquoise.  I wasn't sure about this combination at first but I really ended up liking it!  I think the key to using such a variety of colors well is to use a lot of white, so that is what I chose to do.
Nothing too complicated to explain on this one!  I put the birds in the corners in place of the three circles for a little added accent.  I almost forgot to decorate the inside but remembered right before I took the pictures, but I kept it very simple.
Stamp Sets: Oh Hello, Up Up & Away
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Tempting Turquoise
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punch
Accessories: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Dimensionals 


  1. Wonderful card and take on the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Love the hot air balloons, inside and out. And that sentiment is perfect. TFS - Karen, DT
