Boyish Balloons ~ CCMC391 & The Challenge 58

Hello stampers!  Another Thursday has rolled around and that means another creative Create with Connie and Mary is here!  The week we've got a neat sketch.  To complete my card I've also used the inspiration from The Challenge #58.  The Challenge asks us to create a masculine card using the photo as inspiration.  Well, my card isn't the most masculine in the world, but you can see that I took my cue from the colors in the picture.

My card actually started with this yellow balloon from {Celebrate Today}, which was a cast off from another project and had been laying around my desk for quite some time.  I used that as my jumping off point for the sketch and added in another balloon in blue, working from The Challenge colors.  
These colors are so cheerful together and are the perfect compliment to the balloons I feel!  
I pulled together the dot theme by embossing the Watermelon Wonder background with the large dot embossing folder.  The designer papers have sort of a dot and dash feel as well!  

Come play along with our challenge at Create with Connie and Mary this week!  We love to see what you create!

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
