OWH Virtual Card Making Party Challenge #6 - OWH Sketch 136 - Use Punches

I am doing the challenges for Opertion Write Home's Virtual Cardmaking Party completely out of order.   I am trying to get them all done since I have plenty of ideas, but time has been an issue!
Linda at Creepin' Along came up with a great idea for the sketch, which was to use our punches.   I decided to use my balloon punches which haven't seen the light of day for about ten years. I completely forgot I had them until I came to challenge six which is to use this week's sketch (below) from Operation Write Home (Stars & Stamps post here) and punches.

All of the papers are from Recollections and my balloon punch is from Marvy.  I used a Stampin' Up banner die and a Hero Arts sentiment stamp.  I also tried Sandy' techniqiue of placing a brad where the twine comes through the card.  It worked really well.
Off to get some more challenge done.  I only have two more cards to go.


  1. Great card for this challenge. Love how you used your twine as the balloow strings. Great idea.

  2. Fun card...I do not have a balloon punch. ;((( Love those papers! Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. This is adorable, Lee Mae! You should keep that balloon punch handy, it makes for a cute card! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  4. What a wonderful card! The colors are so bright & Cheerful! :)
