Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

This month's blog hop challenge for Papertrey Ink is based off beautifully watercolored popsicles by Sarah Langtry from Just The Bee's Knees. What's your favorite flavor?




They look so tasty and very colorful. These got my creative juices flowing in a different way. I opted to stamp vs. watercolor for this birthday card of pastel balloons. (Not sure why the colors look so dark but maybe because it's overcast here.)

I had trouble with my pastel colors downloading darker and it was cloudy here for one of my photo sessions, so you might be right about the overcast, Kathy. Interesting! I think you made a very festive birthday card with your handmade balloon background and I love that edge!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
