Help us celebrate 100 challenges!!

I am so excited to be celebrating 100 challenges!  When I started this challenge, I never dreamed we would still be going at 100! 

You may just be starting the blog hop or hopped here from Jan Clothier.

I opted for the balloons, ink smooshing and glitter for my card!  I am using this sweet balloon giraffe from Close To My Heart Balloon Animals from 2016.  I heat embossed it in white on a piece of water color paper.

I also heat embossed the sentiment before doing my ink smooshing.  I die cut the watercolor paper, adhered to the card base and added glitter dots and rhinestones.

Wonderful resist card here with the special invite to have a second look by the very soft colours. Congratulations on the 100!

Such a fun and bright card

Fiona Whitehead

Ah ink smoosh - I must admit I was wondering what it was - thanks for the inspiration.

Jan Clothier

Love the multicolour smooshing, Jane. And balloon animals - interesting take on the board. Thank you for leading us through 100 challenges.


Great idea to use a balloon animal, cute card! Congrats on 100 challenges!

Christine Dring

This is so cute! Love that balloon giraffe stamp, and such a fun way to make it stand out. Congrats on 100 challenges!

Theresa P

Congratulations on 100 Challenges! What a fun birthday card! Love the giraffe and your smooshed background.

Alicia O'Bryant

great job with the background and the image is wonderful!

Jo Morris

Ooh - that heat embossing is so effective with the smooshed background - a 'less is more' effectiveness. Awesome card!


Jane - Love the colors in your smoosh and especially the minimalist use of ink! All that white space is great and it makes a great card!


The Queen of clean and simple at it again! Love the soft colors of this sweet birthday card!

Claire Grantham

Ah Jane, our wonderful leader. Thank you so much for all you do to keep us together and the challenge fun. Love, love your card. That is a great ink smoosh. I bet you would like my fave technique - die-cut freezer paper, iron it on, watercolour over it and you get the same effect as your card, I like it because ironing on the items means no bleed. Cx
