Whatever Challenge Wednesday -- FTL82 Balloons

Whatever Challenge Wednesdays features a challenge from the blogosphere, chosen randomly.
Here's our pick for this week:
Hi everyone,
for today's challenge I chose (again !!) Fall-to-layout from clean and simple stamping, meet sketch 82 :
Here's my version with crazy for cupcakes and sweet pea DSP
I just love my big scallop border, here's how I made it. First I made myself a template using 1"circle punch, to make sure it's straight I went all the way up in the punch, this way my circles are aligned horizontally and I punched them one besides another so I could just see a tiny bit of the side of my last hole. Then I centered my template on the bottom of DSP, trace it with a pencil, and cut it out with my paper snip...a perfect border each time...I will keep this little template for sure, and make myself some more with other punches.
For a little added bling I used iridescent ice embossing powder twice on the balloons.
Have a nice stampin' day.

Iridescent ice is such a great embelishment. You can use it anywhere. I really like the card :-)
