Can You Case It #136

Good Morning Card makers!  I hope today you are enjoying your Labor Day Weekend.  We have a new challenge over at Can You Case It?.  Today it is a sketch challenge.
Here is the card I created.

My card is actually a tunnel card.  To make the base of the card, use a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of Pool Play  Cardstock and cut it in half, like you normally would do to make a card.  Fold them both in half, but the inside piece gets folded back on both sides.  I also die cut a Journey Circle in the middle of the piece.
I then attached the two pieces together on the sides.  When folded again, it makes a regular card size. Next, I stamped the balloon from the Blown up set on Whip Cream Cardstock with Pineapple Smoothie ink.  With the same set, I stamped the black dots on top with Black Licorice ink.  I die cut this piece out with the Blown Up die (Current Bloom Benefit) and cut another one from Whip Cream Cardstock.
I then made a sandwich with both and a piece of Whip Cream Thread.  I adhered the top to the inside of the card.
On the front of the card, I created a layer of Black Licorice Cardstock, Cool Pool Cardstock and Celebrate You Pattern Paper.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate You ATS with Pineapple Smoothie ink background and Black Licorice ink for the words.  I then detail cut this piece out and adhered it to the card using foam squares.
To finish the card, I added some Journey Sequins-Pink World to the card.  Enjoy!
