Up, Up and Away

Hello!  I recently won some stamps from The House That Stamps Built including this Repeat Impressions Hot Air Balloon Cluster.   I used this stamp with some new pattern papers that I had purchased which had a paper design with hot air balloons.  I stamped the balloons with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a blue cardstock from stash that I embossed with clouds using a Darice embossing folder. I colored the clouds with a white pencil.  I then paper pieced the balloons with 3 different pattern papers. Following the sketch shown on the left from The House That Stamps Built challenge I built my card  with more of the pattern papers from Fancy Pants Designs Wonderful Day and Happy Go Lucky pads.  I added a clear epoxy sticker Celebrate Today from Clouds Designs.

What If?  Wednesday: Sketch Challenge #M1414
