Confetti for Fab Friday

I can't get enough of the new Confetti Celebration stamp set, so I'm featuring it on my card for this week's Fab Friday Challenge!   Here's my card:


And here's the banner that was my inspiration:


As you can see, I followed the sketch closely.

I used a piece of Emerald Envy for my card base.  I embossed it using the Big Dots embossing folder.  I chose a piece of DSP from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack,to compliment the card base.

For the banner, I stamped the party lights from Confetti Celebration in black and then colored them with markers.  Using the Hooray from the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in the Emerald Envy and punched it out with a 2" circle punch.

I strayed from the sketch just a bit with the placement of my embellishment.  I chose a balloon stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and placed it higher than the sketch indicates.  

Did you notice I got dotty with this card?  All of the elements have a tendency toward a circle shape.  I like the way that it ties the card together.  Hope you like it too!

Happy stampin'!
Robin
