More Birthday Balloons: CC160 & WSC42

Happy Monday! Can you believe - a first thing in the morning post? From me - on a preschool day?? Oh, and WOW, look out the window at those flying pigs! Who'da thunk it?! *snort*

Ok, I'm done. Can you tell I'm pleased with myself for having this up and going?

This card uses the current color combo challenge on Splitcoast - CC160. It calls for Creamy Carmel, Mellow Moss, Cameo Coral and Apricot Appeal. I also went with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge for this weekend - WSC42. I think it works really well with this stamp set. I actually have another card I made with WSC42 but it's for my April Guest Designer work at Clear Artistic Stamps so I can't show it to you yet! You'll probably recognize the sketch when you see it though. Here it is for reference:
All stamps are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. My April design set is Birthday Balloons - Up Up & Away, isn't this a fun one?! I've needed a balloon set for awhile now and when Pamela showed us this one I was thrilled! This is my third project using it {you can scroll down if you missed the first one}. If you are interested in seeing all of my projects made with Firecracker Designs images, you can click on the Post Category of "fcd art" on the left sidebar.

Do you love those glitter dots on the right side of the card? They're from Gina K's store, {I went to the retail shop, but I believe she has them online too}. Lots of fun colors with these, but a warning -- they are not self-adhesive! I used mini glue dots to stick them down and they work fine. For some reason though, I expected they would be self-adhesive. Go figure.
