MIM # 259 Ombre Cluster Stamping

Dawn has a new MIM video up HERE showcasing her Ombre Cluster Stamping.
I used these balloons:
Paper Clippings:  Birthday, Balloon Bash, Birthday Style
I started with terra cotta tile at the top, then orange zest, and finally summer sunrise.

Thanks for stopping and taking a look!
Hope ya'll have a great week!

  6. I think I'm seeing a pattern here with most cards using Fall colors...guess we're all tired of the heat and humidity and ready for the beautiful colors and cooler temps of Fall! Love how you used balloons for your cluster Colleen, and how beautifully done they are in the ombre shades too! Fabulous and fun birthday card my friend!! :0)
