Bella's Balloon

It's been another busy week here! I got sidetracked and couldn't post this card until today. I used this weeks sketch from Mojo Monday along with another adorable image from the Bella & Friends stamp set.

Watercoloring the sweet images in this set is so much fun!
I like the way this sketch allowed me to use scraps from the Blooms & Bliss DSP. I chose colors from the paper to color the image: Sahara Sand, Island IndigoMint Macaron. I popped up the balloon with Stampin' Dimensionals  and added some Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.
I guess you could say that balloons are the theme around here this weekend. The town I live in hosts an annual Balloon Festival. I had not been to it in quite some time, but we were able to go this weekend. The weather was perfect and we were lucky to see over 40 gorgeous balloons launch!
It's quite an exciting and colorful display as the balloons are filled with air and begin to take flight.
The sky was a gorgeous blue and calm as can be, allowing for the launch to go as planned. Unfortunately, the weather some years doesn't allow for this. Even too much of a breeze can deter the balloons from lift off.
Each balloon is as beautiful as the next. I especially loved the shape and the artwork painted on the carousel themed balloon. Isn't it a beauty?

Up, up and away...
The underwater scene painted on this balloon was another favorite!
At dusk many of the balloons came back to treat us all to a balloon glow.
Seeing all the balloons lighting up the night sky was really quite spectacular!
