Tag, You're It! Challenge #25

Yesterday, on my blog, I announced that I was invited to join the Tag, You're it! design team.  I also mentioned that it is an honor to work along side these amazing ladies.  Here's a prime example:

I loved Erin's ink blending and wonderfully balanced design.  I CASEd Erin's design using a single balloon instead of her flower, confetti rather than sequins, and embossed streamers where she had writing.  The balloon string winds down to give a nod to Erin's lower right swirl. 
After I took the pictures, I thought the balloon looked rather flat, even though it is cupped a bit and raised with foam.  Here it is later with the balloon covered in Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents: 
Then, of course, the camera wouldn't cooperate because of the shine!

I used PTI's Hooray Stamp Set for the streamers and the sentiment.  The background is Impression Obsession's Textural Dots.  I heat embossed all of the stamped images using Zing Aqua, Mustard, and Apricot embossing powder.  The main panel was ink blended with PTI's Hawaiian Shores.  I made the balloon out of PTI Orange Zest cs using the Silhouette.  I created a circle and then double clicked for point editing, and pulled the bottom downward a bit.  I then created a triangle and merged them together.  The white "glare" is from a Gelly Roll pen.  The confetti was punched out of PTI cs: Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores, and Harvest Gold with a tiny hole puncher.  The satin ribbon was salvaged from pajama packaging.

I hope you get a chance to play along with Tag, You're IT! for challenge #25.  It would be so much fun to see you there!

Thanks for coming over to visit.  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
