TO77 - Happy Birthday


Here's a fun card for the current Time Out Challenge, where we are inspired by this photo:



I love the whimsy of this photo. There's a lot going on and so many ways to be inspired, but since Stamplorations is the sponsor I knew exactly which stamp set I wanted to use. This 'party house' idea is one I've seen before, but it was so fun to use the silly colours of one of the houses in the photo to capture a similar feeling. I coloured the rest of the neighbourhood with tones of grey.

I focused on the:
-row of houses
-blue sky, green ground
-balloons

I used:
-Stamplorations Houses
-WPlus9 Friend for all Seasons (Fall) and matching dies
