This card was created for a challenge from a couple of weeks ago at 365 Cards... The challenge was to create a card that was inspired by the cover of the CD soundtrack to the TV series, "Glee." It's hard to see, but I stamped the balloon image once on the Yoyo Yellow and stamped the balloon again on red so that I could cut it out and make it pop off the card with a Stampin' Dimensional. I did basically the same thing (minus the Dimensional) with the candle and flame on the cupcake. It's called "Paper Piecing" and it's a fun way to add a little oomph to an image. I've had to use this technique when I've been without a certain color of ink... Make your supplies stretch farther!

This is such a fun television show and I was thrilled to get to use its CD as inspiration for a card...

"Don't stop believin'!"
