I made these glorious little parcels for a contest a major balloon company is running.  Well, I didn't make a high enough percentage of the signature color.  I was supposed to use at least 75% of the color.  I TRULY thought I had.  After I received their e-mail telling me that I hadn't used enough of the color, I wanted to contradict them.  I actually calculated out precisely how many balloons I used of each color for each creation.  Know what I found out?  They were right.  Now, after creating these great little things, I am out of the signature color, and I don't have quite enough time to order more.  So I've decided to go ahead and share them with the world.  I hope you love them.  I've had a ton of fun creating them!

Gray:  6
Green:  3
Pink:  4
Silver:  2
Light Brown:  29
Total Balloons used:  44
Total Percentage of correct color:  65%
SIGH!  So close, yet so far away.

White:  2
Dark Brown: 6
Light Brown:  12
Total Balloons used:  20
Total Percentage of correct color used:  60%
DANG IT!  They were right for both of them!

On the wishing well, if you had made the top the same brown and just used a lighter colored rim would the percentage had been enough?

That's a good idea, and I do think it would take me to the correct percentage. I simply don't have any more mocha browns left and I'm out of time to order. Thank you for the suggestion, though!
