Dandelion Balloon Celebration on Subtle Sunday - #125

Welcome back to Subtle Sunday, the day when we look at a softer palette and a quieter looking project. I found the idea for this on Pinterest, but have not been able to find out who came up with the original idea, otherwise I would like to acknowledge them, although they used a very different palette and included patterned paper, so it does look quite different.

Balloon Celebrations Dandelion Card in Blushing Bride

I was surprised when I realised that there were the stamps for the dandelion in this set, they are really hidden in amongst everything else, but they are there and they are so pretty to use. I think this is a set that will be useful for all sorts of occasions, and I have even seen some of the stamps used as 'designer stubble'; seriously!

I really enjoyed making this card, it is so 'simple, but effective', oh and you will notice that I managed to straighten out the Blushing Bride version, in spite of having used Fast Fuse. More on how in a future Top Tip Tuesday.

    1. Hi Jenny, glad I was able to help. The Dandelion is pretty well hidden in this set, I don't think I would have found it without Pinterest! Lx
