Addicted to CAS - Challenge #34

Hello all.  It's time for another challenge over at Addicted to CAS and your hostess is the delightful Sandie of London Days and here is the code word she's chosen for you:

Our Sponsor for this challenge is

The prize will be a pack of her rubber stamps called "It's all about You".

We also have the very talented Karen as our Guest Designer so please pop on over to her blog to say hello.

Must admit I had to sit and think about this one as there were several ways you could go but in the end plumped for this.............come and look what I made.

I have used the dies from Clearly Besotted's Make a Wish set to cut three apertures in a piece of card and then used the same dies to cut out some multi coloured glitter card.  I used Pinflair to pop these up over the apertures, tucking a piece of bakers twine under each balloon which were drawn together with a small bow.  The greeting is from Stampin Up Sincere Salutations stamped in Kaleidacolor Pastel ink. I then added three gems.

Pop on over to the Addicted to CAS blog to see what the rest of the DT have come up with to inspire you.

Happy crafting.

    At first when I saw the codeword for this week's challenge I also thought 'what can one do?', but after looking at the lovely DT cards I actually realised that it's not that difficult after all. Will have to see what I can come up with!
