Wired Balloon Bouquet

HERE is the fantastic photo Cath chose for us at Moxie Fab World this week - the rich deep colours inspired me for this CAS card based on Colleen's (smoatsmom) balloon card found HERE.
I used Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Birthday Bash dies to cut the balloons and then sponged them with ink, leaving a bit of white to give the illusion of depth and reflected light.
The balloons are popped up in different layers so there's a lot of dimension which isn't as evident in the photo.
I atttached wire to make a balloon bouquet - this works beautifully if you 
curl the wire too for a different look! 
If I'm curling wire I usually use a paintbrush handle for sweet little loops.
The background embossing is my favourite at the moment - Spellbinders M-bossibilities So Trendy!
Whatever your Sunday holds, have a wonderful day!
Other Supplies include:
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Stampin Up Yoyo Yellow, Cool Caribbean, Green Galore,
Orchid Opulence, Melon Mambo ink

Fantastic colouring - the shading is perfect and make the balloons so realistic! I think I may have to get that embossing folder!
