Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 298

wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

New Something

 We are using  Simon Says Stamp this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

 For this theme, you can use your new stash or create any projects with the theme of celebrating new events (baby, job, house...). I created the card with my fairly new die. I am still in love with the new Balloon Bouquet die and can't get enough of it! 

041

For this card, I simply created a watercolor paper and did some die cut. I also did a die cut on white card stock, just so I can get the outlines of the balloons. After that, I just put all the pieces back together. The sentiment is from the new set called " Wishing and Sending".
I used a piece of vellum and gold and white embossed the tiny heart border and sentiment.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
