Another Summer Card Camp Birthday card!

Happy, happy Saturday!!!
Are you enjoying your weekend?
I sure am!
I'm relaxing at the river reading, and crafting and soaking up every bit of time I get to be here.  
It will end in a few short, I better take full advantage of it now! 

Today's card is another birthday card for a dear, dear friend.
I chose to go with darker hues of the color combination and I just love the results.

I tried a "new-to-me" technique called Rock-N-Roll combining many of the colors in the challenge.  The balloons turned out awesome doing this and I will be using it again.  I also used the same technique on the sentiment and I LOVE how the words turned out.  It sort of gives them some dimension that I didn't expect.

Here's the birthday card!
I used Tim Holtz Distress inks to do the Rock-N-Roll.......The red/orange balloon came out the best, but if you click to enlarge the photo, I'll bet you'll be able to see the light/dark greens and the light/dark oranges.  They really came out better than I had expected.

Love this sentiment from PTI's Make A Wish stamp set.  You may need to click on the photo in order to enlarge it so you can read it clearly.

 I combined the Summer Card Camp - Week 2 Color Combination with the i{heart}2stamp July Sketch Challenge.  There is plenty of time to join the sketch challenge, so if you like it, just click the link above and give it a whirl!!!

Those balloons are just fabulous. Love the little rhinestones on them as well. You did a great job of the rock-n-roll technique. I agree the sentiment looks really fun with the various colours. Glad you're having a productive camping trip too!!
