Summer Balloon

Summer is certainly in full swing here!  I'm pretty excited for a hot air balloon festival that is happening in a couple of weeks in a neighboring city.  The great thing about moving to a new town is getting to do all the fun, new things that happen in the summer here!

In honor of the hot air balloon festival, I decided to make this card.  I used some cloud paper from the Echo Park "Let's Picnic" line. I saw it at my local LSS and knew it was too cute to pass up!  The balloon is cut from the "Patriotic Balloon" cutting file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  Instead of cutting it in patriotic colors, I picked some bright colored polka dot paper from a stack by Paper Studio.  Then I cut out one of the clouds from the Echo Park paper and layered it on foam squares in front of the balloon to make it look like it was flying through the clouds. 


This card is being entered into the following challenges:
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons- Summer Fun 
Paper Playtime- Use Patterned Paper
Krafty Girls- Anything Goes
