#238 Photo Inspiration!

Hi! It's Just Us Girls time again and this time Sue has a great Photo Inspiration challenge for us! You can see it HERE!  And, of course, we hope you'll play along and be inspired to create something of your own to share with us!  All chics of the week (in April) are in the running to be chosen as our guest designer in one of the upcoming months! Please show us what ya got!
The balloons inspired me to creaet my own!  This is the largest die in a set from Simon Says Stamp.  You can see the set HERE!  This largest one still fits in an A2 envelope.  I cut my card base (using the die) from a folded piece of 4.25 x 11" card stock.  Leave the die a bit above the fold of the card stock and you get a folded shaped card.  Then I cut a single balloon from a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock and adhered that to the top of the folded card.  This way you don't have the flat edge of your card showing on your card front.  Before adhering the balloon I ran it through in my large dotted cuttlebug folder. After that I punched a bunch of white dots using my 3/8" punch.  The placement of the embossed dots gave me the perfectly spaced placement for all my punched dots. Once they were glued on I just shaded the edge of my balloon, tied some twine to the balloon end and stamped a sentiment, which I then adhered.
And here is another inspired card-white balloon and coastal cabana dots. This one is made with the same steps as I'm sure you can tell!
Okay, that's it for me!  Now, come on and show us what you've been inspired to make!  You have until Thursday, May 1 at 9:00 pm to link up your project with our Linky Tool.  And, you don't want to miss all the inspiration on the JUGS BLOG from the team!
Thanks for coming by!

I love your balloon shaped card! Adding all of those punched dots has such a great effect. And I love the shading around the edge. Great take on the inspiration piece.
