Power outage for her means fun for us!

Last week there was a terrible ice storm in a nearby area, where my daughter lives. Thousands of people lost power, and unfortunately she was one of them. After getting the news that the power may not be on for 5 days, she came home for a visit for a few days (bliss for mom!!).  Besides spending as much time as we could in the sun (the weather has been amazing since the storm!), we spent a little time in my stamp room, co-designing a card for the new SUO Challenges challenge; Pinks and Purples. Morgan and I decided to stick with pinks. Okay, maybe that part was me, because I LOVE pink!

Pink Balloon

We pulled out all the Stampin' Up! pinks and settled on these three; Melon Mambo, Strawberry Slush, and Pink Pirouette. We added interest with the Washi Tape from the Gingham Garden collection. Morgan came up with the idea to make the Washi balloon, and I love the way it turned out! I laid down the Washi tape on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, aligning the pattern, and then punched it out with my circle punch. For the 'tie' I punched out a foot from the Owl Builder punch.
