I made this card for two challenges...
The Splitcoast Color Challenge was to use the retiring In Colors (Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizazz, Concord Crush). I chose to use all 5. I cut diagonal strips for the background piece and embossed with dots.
The balloon is made using a circle which I embossed with scallops and the basket is the cupcake punch. I used twine and popped up the circle with dimensionals.
I added some clouds in the background and a bit of dotted scallop border under the sentiment. The sentiment is from "Sweet Cake".
The layout is from Stamping 411.
