Paper Sweeties August Inspiration Challenge #22 - Let's Celebrate

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Can you believe it's August already?  Time flies when you're having fun!  Summer's not over!  There is still time to play - but you better make it count!! A new challenge starts today at Paper Sweeties!  Another beautiful inspiration photo from Debbie, the owner and creator of Paper Sweeties.  I can't wait to see what she made for this one - it's a dreamy birthday party in pastel shades of pink blue and green.    I love playing along with the sketch challenge because I get to catch up with my friends, old and new on the Paper Sweeties Design Team.  It's always  a party with the alumni joining in! 
 I thought I'd try something different this time.  I played around with this one for a while to get if just right.  I stamped some balloons from the "Celebrate" set in soft pastel colors on white card stock.  Next I die cut a few strings of pennants and border cut the edge to let some pattern paper peek through - what an easy way to add some extra color to a stamped design.   Last I decked it out with some Paper Sweeties sequins - have you seen these yet?  They are super shiny and shaped like flowers!! 
 Want to see more here's links to all the designers with projects today!
