Stampin' Up! Love

I'm so embarrassed; I made a card for this week's "Dies" challenge at Simply Stampin' and completely forgot to include a Stampin' Up! stamp. It's not like this requirement is hidden; I believe it's actually bolded and underlined directly above the Linky LOL! They were nice enough to leave my project in the pool for the random prize (using a Stampin' Up! stamp is a requirement for Top 3), but it's not like I don't have SU! stamps I want to use, so tried my hand at the challenge again.

I stamped this lovely balloon/sentiment from a 2002 SU! set in SU! Wild Wasabi & Memento Rich Cocoa inks. I embossed & cut out the piece with a Spellbinders die in my Big Shot (Love it!). I distressed the circle & the card base (a pre-embossed cardstock) with SU! Barely Banana ink. I stamped a balloon border with the same stamp and colored it (and the center balloon) with SU! watercolor crayons.

I finished off the card with a little ribbon furl. So glad I made this -- I'm very happy with it.
