Paper Players 500 CAS Celebration

Happy Sunday, peeps and happy Paper Players 500th birthday!  Woohoo!  Can you believe, 500 challenges!  That's pretty awesome!  Jaydee is our hostess for this week, and she has a CAS celebration challenge for us!

Remember, this is a CLEAN AND SIMPLE challenge; if you need a refresher as to our terms for clean and simple, check out the blog for the details!  For my card, I did NO stamping, but I did use lots of glimmer paper, a punch and a couple dies!  Here we go:

To me, if you're having a celebration, you need to have SPARKLE!  I punched out three balloons in various shades of glimmer paper, then added a big gold sparkly celebrate at the bottom and "attached" my balloons to it:

Just a quick hint when you're doing intricate diecuts with glimmer paper; I always separate the backing paper from the glimmer paper so it's a little thinner.  That makes it easier to pop it out of the die.  For this particular sentiment, I did add a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of the glimmer paper after I had separated it and before running it through the Big Shot, and it still ran through and cut very nicely!

To pep up the sparkle, I added some shimmery stars as well, and accented each balloon with a sparkly sequin!! You can never have too much sparkle!

Everything went on a thick Whisper White card base; I'll stamp a sentiment on the inside when I'm ready to mail it out!  And I am also squeaking this in just under the wire at Festive Friday:

I've got pink, green, diecuts and SPARKLE!!!  

I hope you'll play along with our special celebration...share your CAS creation with us at the Paper Players blog, and be sure to check out what everyone else has created!  Can't wait to see it!

What a fantastic celebration card, LeAnne! I need to remember this for the kids birthdays! I love the sparkle and how you've "tied" the balloons to the sentiment! The sequins are a fun addition too!

LeAnne, this is the perfect celebration card. Those fabulous glittery balloons make me so happy. You have arranged them so that they look as though they are about to float off the card. Fabulous CAS card my friend and I am so honored to have been creating with you for so many challenges :-)
