Sneak Peek 'Celebrate' - Global Design Project #gdp015

Hello and welcome to my blog. 
It's the Global Design Project 'Theme' Challenge #gdp015 this week, and the Theme is 'Celebrate'. I am celebrating that School is out for Summer (and I'm singing it right now), and my Teacher Husband has finally finished the year as of today. And Celebrate we are! What are you Celebrating right now? Maybe a December Birthday?
I have made a Birthday card; using some gorgeous NEW products available in the Occasions Catalogue from January 5th, 2016. 
What's a celebration without balloons? These cute little balloons using Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Pool Party & Watermelon Wonder are NEW and in the Occasions Catalogue - 'Party Wishes Stamp Set' and coordinating 'Party Punch Pack' and they will come as a BUNDLE!!! Happy days.
I immediately thought of the wood veneer 'Celebrate' for my creation from the 'Expressions Natural Elements'. This pack also has 'Thanks' & 'Congrats' and there are 5 of each (15 in total) to make your 3D projects look amazing!!!
I used the Gold Metallic Thread for the balloons and threaded the strands through the 'Celebrate'. 
I stamped a little 'make a wish' on the inside of the card, and added a banner at the bottom using the very pretty 'Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper'. I am in love with this DSP. Seriously, IN LOVE. It's my newest and best DSP, and you are going to love it too... I know you will. 
Did you notice the strip of the most gorgeous and NEW 'Pool Party Glitter Ribbon', sitting underneath the 'Celebrate' sentiment? Again, I am in love with this stunning ribbon. IN LOVE, and I gasped when I saw it!!! You can see it all shiny and sparkly (in the photo above) and for my project I cut it down to a finer strip; (originally 1cm or 3/8" wide). 
WARNING: This ribbon frays when cut. I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere the ribbon to the cardstock, using the teeniest amount to the cut side to hold it all together. 
I punched Vellum balloons to overlay the existing stamped and punched cardstock balloons. The vellum gives the existing balloons a soft layer, and they have a lovely finish as if they were real and floating in the air.

I cannot wait for the Occasions Catalogue to go live in January, and please let me know if you would like me to send you your very own - *Australian Residents Only. It's so gorgeous, you have to see it and hold it and flick through it and get your Wish List ready... just message me.

Thankyou for coming along and reading my blog post. I really love your comments and I really do try and reply back. The main thing is that I have inspired you and hope you get the chance to play along with the Global Design Project? D x
