This is a great color combo that I saw as a challenge a while back. Gray and Old Olive is a great guy card color combo! I chose to do Smoky Slate as well as Basic Gray. I used the striped DSP from the A Little Foxy paper stack and cut it at an angle. The base is Basic Gray stamped with the confetti stamp set from Balloon Adventures.
I used the wide stripes to stamp my sentiments in Basic Gray. The balloons are all stamped in Old Olive and I used my gray watercolor pencil to color in the white spaces blending with a blender pen. Then they were punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch (I love that the punch works with this set as well as the Balloon Celebration set!).
I tied some white bakers twine for the strings and then popped the balloons with dimensionals. A few Old Olive enamel shapes finish off the details for this card.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
