Over at Splitcoaststampers, the Clean and Simple challenge CAS34 is a color challenge - pink, green, blue, chocolate, and white.
So I used the George cart for the balloons cut at 1 1/2", shaded lightly and on pop-dots. Got three of the colors there! Then I used my sewing machine for the strings in white and stamped the sentiment in chocolate chalk ink. All 5 colors!
I'm really liking the look of the long cards. It uses more CS but they also fit in a long envelope so no special envelope making required...so it's a trade off. I must admit, this was my second attempt. My first try, I put the balloons on chocolate CS (4.25" by 5.5" regular size card) and it was just a mess. I left it for the night and gave it some thought. The next morning, I woke up with this idea...yes, I often dream of paper (no lie). Either way, this layout is MUCH nicer.
