Our Creative Corner Challenge - Clean & Simple

Happy New Year everyone!! Today's card is for this week's challenge over at Our Creative Corner. This week our January hostess, Joycelyn Turner, has challenged us to a clean and simple challenge. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

For my sample, I used a stamp set by SU called Sweet Centers. I stamped the base of the balloon in chocolate chip and popped it up over an embossed piece of cardstock using my hearts embossing folder by Cuttlebug. Using my heart Nestabilities, I punched out three white hearts and three red hearts and glued each of the hearts together. I then glued the three hearts together and added it to the popped up balloon base. Bakers twine was added to each side of the balloon along with a fun loop above. Clean, simple and easy! I hope you were inspired by my card today.

Before I go, I would like to announce the winner for the bakers twine giveaway. Congratulations to Mary Lou, please email me your addy so I can get your goodies off to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by, please don't forget to visit the OCC, the Design Team have put together some wonderful samples to help inspire you. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!!

how cute & fun! I don't have the scalloped heart only the plain one, but still I bet it would make a pretty card too. TFI
