This weekend I'm catching up with all of the CPS anniversary sketches and I'll have at least one card to share every day and hopefully an extra special project that I'll be working on this weekend. For today, I'm using sketch #26, for day 10:
I also decided to use the colors from this week's Play Date Cafe's challenge:
For whatever reason, when I saw the colors I immediately thought of a hot air ballon and the diamond pattern that some of them have so I set out to make my own background paper. When I was searching through my stamps deciding which to use, I found a set that I forgot I had and haven't even used yet. In the end, I was pretty happy with what I ended up with:
It took sometime to make the background, but I think it was well worth it! And since I paper pieced the background and ballon, it'll be playing along with CAS-ual Friday this week too:
Stop by tomorrow to see how I use CPS's sketch for day 11.
Have a great weekend!
