AYSI149 Glimmer Balloons

Happy Monday, everyone!  My birthday card stash is a little low, so my card today will go to remedy that!  It uses the As You See It sketch, and I went very literal with it:

This card began as one thing and morphed into something else totally different!  I found this ombre pink DSP in that huge stash I was talking about earlier in the week and thought Blush Blossom glimmer paper would go with it....and then I thought how black stars would look cool with it and it just went on from there:

I also embossed the background with the Lucky Stars embossing folder; added a banner of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper and a diecut "yay" in more Basic Black glimmer paper!

The inside featured a small strip of the same ombre paper and a Paper Pumpkin sentiment.  Speaking of Paper Pumpkin, I went through all of my sets and cataloged the sentiments and images....yikes, there are a lot of them!  I hope to use them more often!

Thanks for popping in today--be sure to stop back tomorrow!  I'll have two posts for you to peruse!

Cassidy will make "art" with anything she can she is drawing a jack-o-lantern with water and a watering can!!!

 Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Really cute card. I love pink and black together. Glad to see you are getting organized with your PP stamps. I already did that but forget to look at the I dropped out of PP but then when they started doing the hints on Facebook, I rejoined FOR THIS MONTH ONLY!!! LOL. I don't have room for anymore kits. Have a blessed week and I'm so pleased that Cassidy has such a great imagination.

I love this! That ombre paper is to die for and the glimmer paper balloons look amazing on it!! That banner is perfect for it too. Cassidy is so creative!!

I always overlook glimmer paper when I'm crafting, but I see that I should use it more often! You've shown how it adds an air of celebration. I like the ombre paper too- subtle but effective. Have you joined us yet at As You See It?

LeAnne, I have a couple of questions. Do you know what month/year this birthday PP is from? Also you said that you went through all of your PP sets and cataloged them, how did you do that? I have a lot of mine in a binder but have to look through the whole binder everytime I want to use one. There has to be a better way. Dianna

LeAnne, I got quite the chuckle out of Cassia making art with the watering can! She definitely has had that creative urge passed on to her! I love the sparkly glory of the glimmer paper in your project and the contrast of the black on the pink! I also love the blocky font of the die cut yay! Good to see you again at As You See It Challenges!
