Flying High

Hello!  Would it not be fun to take a flight in a Hot Air Balloon and chase your dreams?  That is what I was thinking as I designed this card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and colors from Color Throwdown.  I stamped  3 Hot Air Balloons with Repeat Impressions stamps, colored with Copics BG01, B29, N4, and N6, and fussy cut the images.  I embossed a white panel with Darice FF Clouds. Added a Laurel Burch sentiment with Memento Gray Flannel ink. I assembled the card with a Base of Aqua CS, a strip of Embossed Blue CS, and the balloons above the clouds.   I sponged the clouds with a bit of blue and gray.  
Guess I'll stay grounded....my DH has no desire to fly in a Hot Air balloon.
