Balloon Fiesta

This card reminds me of fall. Back home, the Balloon Fiesta is the weekend after Labour Day. This year I was home to see them, but unfortunately, I never got to see them fly.

I wanted to make a card to represent my love for the hot air balloons and this was what I came up with! The colours are so bright and fun and I already have a person in mind to give this to.

We made this card at my stamp class this week and all the girls loved it! I had a different layout when making this card the first time and wasn't in love with it. I walked away from it so many times and I'm so glad I did because I am very happy with it!

The clouds in the background are stamped using the Create-A-Cupcake stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise.
Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink, Basic Black, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise.
Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Create-A-Cupcake
Accessories: Argyle Embossing Folder, Lots of Tags Sizzlits, 1/4 Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.

Here is a picture of the Balloons actually taking flight 3 years ago in NB.
