OCC Color Challenge...with a twist

Hey there! It's time for another challenge at Our Creative Corner. This week's hostess, Lori Rider, chose some great colors for everyone to use! The twist is that the project must be made by using 3 different punches- and one of those has to be a border punch.

My card used:
balloon punch
corner-rounder punch
scalloped border punch

I was kind of inspired by the movie Up- I thought a house with balloons would make the perfect card to congratulate someone who just moved. (I actually made this card a week or so ago, because a friend of mine from work just moved into a new house!!! Hooray for her!!)

The clouds, the sentiment, and some of the balloons are popped up with foam tape for added dimension, the house is die-cut, and I drew the balloon strings in with a marker. Here's the final card:



I really hope you check out the rest of the samples from the DT and play with our challenge this week at Our Creative Corner!
