EBTKS Challenge #11

Hi there! The most recent challenge over at "Everything But The Kitchen Sink" is a sketch challenge, and it's a goodie!!!! There's still time to play along!! The challenge ends tomorrow (3/24) at midnight! Click HERE for all of the details and to check out the fabulous creations submitted by all of the participants!

Here's the sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

You'll notice that I flipped the sketch 90 degrees. I created the pattern on the left-hand side of the panel using the banner images from "Look Up!" (Practicing Creativity). I'm so happy with the way it turned out! Can't wait to try it with other color combos as well! The sentiment is from the "New Baby" stamp set by Martha Stewart! I think it fits perfectly with the hot air balloons and the color scheme!!!

Here's a close-up of the pattern I created:

The hot air balloon in the center was stamped on patterned paper, and then I adhered it with pop dots. The polka dot balloon was stamped on gray cardstock and adhered with double-sided tape. The solid balloon was stamped directly onto the panel.

One last view:

What a neat idea to use the hot air balloons for a baby theme, I have just ordered my set and I think that this would be a grand idea. Your colors are wonderful and the border created with the banner stamps looks great!
