Cardabilities Reveal Day!

Good morning friends! Happy Wednesday to you all! I'm excited to share my card with you today...it is the 6th sketch from the Cardabilities sketch blog. I love this sketch and think Karan is a great sketch artist!! Be sure to take a moment and look at the fun from the other DT members...it's bound to be a inspirational few minutes!!
I've been wanting to use more purple...I love it, but don't use it often. I went with Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding and Lemon Tart from PTI for my color palette. I stamped the Plum card with the large polkas from Polka Dot BasicsII, then added my Lavender Moon layer. I used my border punch from SU, on the Lemon Tart paper, then mounted it to the Lavender layer. I stamped the hot air balloons from Everyday Button Bits with Plum ink and added some Lemon Tart buttons for the tops of the balloons.

My Lemon Tart circle in the corner has been stamped with polka dots as well, in lemon tart ink--in real life they are very lovely--not so much in the photo! I used my nesties to cut the circle and scallop circle. I stamped the sentiment from Signature Greetings and then added a little plum paper behind...and there you have it!!

I hope you have a great one...and just another reminder about Cards For Grace drive going on now...here's the info again!! Make it great!!
