Allsorts Challenge #777 - Balloons/Anything Goes

 Hi Crafters,

I hope you've had a good week. It's Saturday again and that means a new challenge starting at Allsorts.

This week we have the fabulous theme of


I'm trying to use up some of my older stash - it's amazing how much I have amassed over the years. This card uses papers from a very old 'Making Cards' magazine and the sentiment stamp was also a freebie on the front I believe. I used oval nesting dies to frame the image and some bakers twine for interest.

This week prizes are from AALL and Create

 We'd love to see what you make using our theme but there is always the Anything Goes option too.

The design team have created a host of Balloon makes which you can find on the challenge blog HERE

Have a great weekend whatever you are up too.

Using up older stash is a fantastic idea, and your card turned out beautifully! The papers from the 'Making Cards' magazine give it a nostalgic charm, and the sentiment stamp adds a lovely touch. The oval nesting dies and bakers twine enhance the overall design wonderfully. Great job!
