Hello! This year seems to be going so quickly. It soon will be time for the Hall Of Fame's Balloon Classic in Canton, OH and we may again see the balloons flying by our house. With that in mind, I thought it was appropriate to make this card for the sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built using Repeat Impressions Hot Air Balloon stamps with one of their sentiment stamps ( one of my faves for cards with flying images). I made the background by embossing Blue CS with Clouds EF .....I tried to heat emboss clouds with White Puff EP but that did not turn out like I wanted. So. I just added white accents with a white pen. Balloons were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I cut them with Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles dies and added Red Circles cut with Spellbinders Circle dies. The cloud for the sentiment was cut free hand and popped up on another Circle of Red. All was arranged on a White Card Base according to the sketch below.

I can trace the date from older posts on my blog. As You Like It Challenge: Favorite Die and Why. I think the circle dies are my favorite because they were my very first to own and I used them more than any ones that I have. They may be plain but great to have AROUND. Addicted to CAS: Challenge #91 Code word is FLY. Happy Little Stampers: Anything goes with dies.
Have a great day! I love reading your comments.
