Beautiful Balloons Card

I've been having so much fun with the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Balloons Bundle which is part of the Bright & Beautiful Suite in the Annual Catalogue.  I love how bright and cheery the cards are that I'm making from this suite.  So fun!

I created this card on a recent Sketch Challenge.  Join me every Tuesday night at 6:30pm for my Sketch Challenge on Facebook and YouTube.  Here's the sketch that I used for this card:
