The theme for this challenge is Celebration.
I stuck very close to their inspiration photo with a bouquet of balloons in the outdoors - only mine are floating to the sky with some subtle clouds stenciled in the background using Clarity Stencil Brushes to be able to stay as soft as possible. I used the lightest blue on the outer edges of each row of clouds with the medium blue in the middle. I did a long row along the bottom, making the row smaller as I moved up so that the upper right is still all white. (The darkest blue in the supply list is actually a darker tone on the bottom left of the blue balloon which you can't even see after I put it all together. You can see the two oranges on the orange balloon, also the yellow if you look closely!)
I wanted to add something slightly unique so I added a stitched frame twining it above and behind the sentiment, balloon strings and the balloon.
Congrats to the Paper Players! I'm looking forward to the next 400!
