Tic Tac Toe #078 - Guest Designer

One of my favorite online card challenge blogs has invited me to Guest Design for them this week and I couldn't be more excited!  Today I'm joining the ladies over at the Tic Tac Toe card blog for challenge #078.  Here's what's on the board this week.

For my card I went with the reverse diagonal of Balloon, Celebration and Any Color Ink.  And just to mix it up a bit, I went with a slimline design.

I chose three colors of Distress Oxide inks and did some overlapped blending of a large balloon stencil.  I used a fourth color for the balloon strings.  I stamped and white heat embossed the celebration sentiment onto a strip of black card stock and mounted the panel onto a black card base.  I finished it off with assorted matte enamel dots in coordinating colors.  I'm really happy with the look of this one.  Here's a closer look at the overlapped blending.

MFT -Big Balloon stencil
MFT - Bitty Birthday Wishes stamp set
Distress Oxides - Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Hickory Smoke
Assorted Manufacturers - matte enamel dots

Many thanks to the gals at the TTT challenge blog for featuring my today!  I hope to see some of you playing along!
