OLW #20 - Hip, Hip Hooray!



Hello Blogger's,

Here's my card for Susan's One layer Wednesday #20.  The challenge this week was for 3 and 1..........That is, three images and one sentiment. 

Looking at my card you'll be asking yourself .... can she count ?  Ha ha  I can read minds!  I thought for a while about how to play this one.  My stamp choice was  a set of three balloons from Annabelle Stamps 'Hold A Candle'.  Would I just stamp it once and call it three images, or stamp one image  three times..........See my dilemma?   

Well you can see what I decided and to make it fit  some of the image is 'off the page' anyway!  If I've broken the rules...........Sorry........ but..... have to say I quite like this!

Back tomorrow with a huge post for the 2nd day of Annabelle Stamps Sept. previews, hope you'll call past for that.......Oh and don't forget my September Candy here.

I like your interpretation of "three plus one" there is lovely movement in your card.

Kerrie said...

Rules are made to be broken (LOL)... its a fun card.

Susan said...

I personally love that you were thinking outside the box. I love that some of the balloons are off the card...give it a floating feel!

Love this one layer card Sue! these can be very challenging, but they usually turn out great! And what? I don't see any rules broken! Love it! And I agree, great movement, it really carries your eyes!

I don't think you broke the rules at all, I think you played them perfectly and produced an excellent card as well!

Colleen said...

Sue,
Lets just say you have three clusters of three. See no rules broken here. LOLI love your card, it is just as cute as can be.

Julia Aston said...

what a fun b'day card Sue! love those balloons and the way you stamped them!

Bonnie said...

I see your dilemma but I think you interpreted it just fine! I love all the balloons floating up into the air! A fun card!

I too grappled whether to stamp one image three times, especially when I found most of my stamps group things in pairs rather than 3's.

And I too ended up with balloons....the most-used stamp in my collection. Don't you think it odd that there are no balloon punches except very small ones? I would love balloon punches, in at least 3 different sizes, because balloons are age and gender neutral!

Love your card.
