April Studio AE from Technique Tuesday Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome!!  I am so happy to be a guest designer this month for Studio AE by Technique Tuesday!  You should have came here from Ali Edwards Blog (OMGosh, can you believe that Ali is linking to MY blog!! haha!!)

The April Studio AE Set:  Favorite Circles:
And here is my card:

I've always loved designing with balloons...  so I decided to be creative and use the circle shape to make a balloon!  I cut off the pointy part of the arrow to make the tie on the balloon.  (It's hard to see because the baker's twine is tied around it.)  I stamped a smiley face from SMILE BIG on the star, just because it made me happy!

My card base is 5 1/2 x 3.  The balloon is "floating" a bit off the top of the card, allowing it to fit in an envelope for a 3x6 card.



Be sure to check the blogs of all taking part in the Blog Hop today:
Prize:
We’ll pick one person at random to receive a $25 gift certificate from Technique Tuesday from all the comments. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog sometime on the 15th. 

I have another project using this set HERE, if you would like to take a peek!
Thanks soooo much for stopping by on our hop today!!
