Springtime Balloons

I got the new Cloudy Day Embossing Folder especially to use with my Up,Up & Away set but haven't had the opportunity to play with it...until now.

The clouds are formed of delicate dots and even cuter in person. I think it makes the perfect background for the hot air balloon images. Despite the weather...I'm trying to "think Spring", so that's how I chose my Springy color combo of Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Certainly Celery with some Rich Razzleberry thrown in because I felt like it.

I layered the Modern Label & Word Window punches over a stamped design from Creative Elements...and I really like that look. The "hills" were created using the Large Scallop Edgelit. To finish off my creation, I used Pool Party Satin Ribbon and a Basic Rhinestone for the little flower.

Now if only Stampin' Up! would come out with a balloon punch I would use this set even more! I guess I'll add that to my wish list...along with some nice, spring-like weather!

Love everything about this card...especially the way you layered the sentiment over the design from Creative Elements. Thanks for the idea!! --Doris
