A Balloon Birthday

It's another Tuesday and time for two challenges this week.  The first is for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches, and the second is for the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers where I started as a guest challenge hostess this week.  I'll be hosting challenges there every few weeks for the next six months.
 The sketch challenge at CC&S:
And the color challenge at SCS - So Saffron, Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay:
I used watercolor pencils to color the bunny and balloons and the matching dies to cut them out.  The strings were stamped on the Bermuda Bay panel and the balloons and bunny popped up using foam dots.  I thought the large dot embossing folder added a little interest to the front panel of the card while still keeping it clean and simple.

Please join us at both of these challenges this week!
