I heart balloon you.

I've gone very clean and simple with this but I am not really sure about it, at all. 
I have made it for my husband and, while being very supportive and encouraging about (almost) all my cards, he does always think a bow is a step to far. So he will probably like it. 

(He also thinks it is a cheap hobby. I suppose it is compared to some. I don't disillusion him. He is very sweet, he says it gives pleasure to me and pleasure to others when they receive the cards so I should keep making them!) 

When other people make really simple cards they look great but when I do it they just look plain. 
I had meant to trim the square smaller but hadn't factored in the hanging string. Also at the last minute I stuck it on at an angle which I do quite like.
I held myself back from any borders, mounts or embellishments. Tell me what you think, I'd really like to know. I really much prefer things with more work in them.
I've used a Stamplorations balloon stamp, Dovecraft peg letters and Glossy Accents with a  little glitter sprinkled on. 
I'm linking this to the Stamplorations CAS challenge:

and Casology:


All the cards are amazing at both of these challenges.



  1. Clean, simple and perfect. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  2. I love your CAS card and don't think it needs anything else on it - it's perfect! I know what you mean about cards with not much work in them, but they're often my favourites!

  3. I think your card is fine and the heart balloon just looks as though it is floating upwards. Keep up hubbies idea of a cheap hobby ;)

  4. Beautiful CAS card, and your sparkly balloon is perfect. Thank you for sharing with us at CASology this week!

  5. I think you hubby needs to talk to my hubby and explain a few things to him! Lol.
    Your CAS card is great. Love how you put on the angle. Hugs Mrs A.

  6. Oh, this is a real CAS take on our CAS Card challenge! Beautiful and smart layout, one focal image and just red, black and white. Thank you so much for using STAMPlorations stamp and sharing your card with us at STAMPlorations CAS Card Challenge. -Ksenija, DT
