Here is the sketch:
I looked at my stamps and decided to make a hot air balloon!
I'm getting rather tired of Christmas cards. I love the holidays, but I needed a break!
Here is my card and an explanation of how this worked!
The basket and sentiment are from the
Waltzing Mouse, "Bountiful Basket Additions" stamp set;
The scrolled portion of the balloon is a label from "Holiday Labels No. 14";
and the back portion of the balloon is cut with the Spellbinders, "Labels Nine" die.
The pattern paper is Prima, so you know it has to be gorgeous!
Lots of lots of distress ink was added, of course!
I popped up the balloon and the basket and added the twine as ropes.
It was so terrific the way these dies and stamps all worked together!
I think it's adorable! Perfect for sending a Spring birthday message!
This card is proudly entered into the challenge and posted on their Gallery. http://waltzingmousehouse.com/wmsgallery/main.php

I could really use some new Waltzing Mouse stamps!
