Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC45: Suite Sentiments

Good morning!  Ever feel like you need to head back to work to get a break from your crazy weekend?  This was definitely me this weekend.  Thankfully I was able to squeeze a little pay time in the studio, it always helps calm me, go figure.  Today on the SSINKspiration blog we have a color sketch and these are perfect colors to make a "dude" card so I decided to embrace it.  I also decided to combine this with the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge for double the fun!  Also, Delightful Dijon is one of the In Colors that will be retiring at the end of this month so I'm enjoying it while I can.

I started with Whisper White Thick cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Delightful Dijon designer series paper, from the 2015-2017 In Colors Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring). Next I added two piece of Whisper White cardstock, the larger piece I sponged around the edge with Pacific Point ink and then I used dimensionals to attached the top piece where I stamped my greeting in Pacific Point ink using the Suite Sentiments stamp set (retiring).

Next I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch and punched two Balloons, the larger one in DSP from the Party Animal Designer Series Paper pack (retiring) and the smaller in Delightful Dijon cardstock and then embossed it with the Big Shot and Elegant Dots Embossing Folder (retiring).  I used a dimensional to pop up the little balloon for a little more "lift".  Whisper White Baker's Twine was used for the balloon strings as well as the bow around the strings.

Of course I need a little extra "pop" to the card so I added some enamel dots, from the Metallics and Brights Enamel Shapes packs (so happy these are sticking around for another year, whoo hoo!)

Another pretty quick and easy card, and the great thing about this greeting is it isn't specific to an occasion so you could use it for birthday, Father's Day, etc. and it would work just as well.  The other SSINKspiration design team members are sharing their creations for cards using this color combination so please, go check it out and then play along, we would love to see what you come up with!
