The Sky's the Limit Graduate!

Here's a card that I made for a graduate using her school colors. Well kinda the school colors...I took a little artistic licence by using Gumball Green & Daffodil Delight, which are a little more subdued than the actual colors. I really love how it turned out!

The large scallops created using the Large Scallop Edgelit & Delicate Designs Embossing Folder make really cute hills for my balloon scene. After creating my sky background using Bashful Blue card stock and the Cupcake Punch (for the clouds) I ran it through the Big Shot using the Snow Burst EF.

This weekend  the town I live in is holding their Annual Balloon Fest. I woke this morning by the sound of hot air balloons coming over our yard. I ran out in my pjs to snap a few quick photos before they disappeared over the tree tops. I love to see the bright, colorful balloons up in the sky...guess that's why Up, Up and Away is one of my favorite stamp sets!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I love how you did the background on this card -- especially the hills! I have that Edgelit die and embossing folder coming in my next order, and I might just have to try this out. Thanks for sharing!
