Hot Air Balloon Birthday Wishes...

Hello Friends,

Here is my second post of the day...for this card , i have first heat embossed the hot air balloon with white embossing powder. Then created this whimsical sunset background with watercolors. I really fell in love with this background..my first attempt..i must say not bad...he he he...then water colored the balloons with bright colors and drew some dots with white color pen to add some interest.Finished it with  heat embossing the sentiments on black card stock with white embossing powder.

Playing along with following challenges:

  1. Fab card, Deepti! You've done an awesome sunset - I would never have guessed it was your first attempt as it looks really pro! The balloons really pop with the white embossing and the whole effect is so eye catching. Just for future reference we do need a bit of white space to meet the Less is More CAS guidelines, and we have a limit of 5 challenge entries including us. But I'm so glad you entered this card as it looks fantastic - anyone would be thrilled to receive this! Great job!

  2. Very vibrant and cool! Love the colors! :)

  8. Those balloons certainly are bold and bright! Such a fun card. Thanks for playing along with us at Seize The Birthday :)

  9. This is a great card and the balloons meet our repetition criterion, but sadly as already mentioned we DO need to see some white space as we are solely a Clean and Simple challenge and we have a max of 5 challenges which may be combined with ours!
    I do hope you'll join us again.
    Thanks so much
