Granny Apple Green Birthday


Welcome to week 20 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2021. This week's feature colour is Granny Apple Green which is from the Brights colour group. Granny Apple Green is like a lime green colour

Whilst looking for inspiration for this weeks card on social media and Pinterest I came across a card using the Picture This circle dies as balloons. I can't for the life of me remember where or who it was so I am unable to reference them but I thought it was a really nifty idea. I have decided to team the Granny Apple Green with Misty Moonlight , Coastal Cabana and Basic White.


I started by using the middle sized circle and cutting 2 of each of the colours. I have then used a Chalk Marker to mark the balloons to look like a gloss reflection. I think I have succeeded?For the balloon strings I have used the Bakers Twine Essentials. I have mounted all of this one a piece of Basic White cardstock that I have embossed using the Checks and Dots Embossing folder.


Finally the sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set and has been stamped using Misty Moonlight and then die cut using a Rectangle Stitched die.

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Michele Taylor . I look forward to seeing what lovely creation they share with us tonight.
