Inkspirational #311 Mickey Balloon

Inkspirational Challenge #311 has posted today over at the blog.  
The challenge is Clean and Simple (CAS) 
optional: feature a balloon

Since I recently purchased this fun Mickey die set  from Kat Scrappiness, I opted to feature a balloon!  I kept it CAS by embossing a white background behind the die cuts that are up on foam dots.  Lots of open white space!

So we hope you will join us for this challenge and link up your CAS design over at Inkspirational where you can also check out all the wonderful CAS designs from the rest of the DT!

Challenge ends on 3/22!

Accessories: Mickey Balloon Dies - Kat Scrappiness, Beaded Garland Embossing Folder - Tim Holtz/Sizzix (an older one, not the new 3D one), foam dots
