Today's new challenge is up at Crafty Creations and I have my DT card to share. I used the absolutely gorgeous Up & Away by my fab teamie Claire (Hope Jacare) because it's a regular sight from my front window. We have hot air balloons taking off from the sports field in front of our house between May & September each year, dependent of course on the weather - the wind has to be not too strong and the sky needs to be quite clear. Anyway it's a great sight seeing the huge balloon inflating and taking off at close range:
I bought my husband Neil a balloon flight for his 50th birthday and he said it was one of the best things he's ever done!
My card was coloured, naturally, with my promarkers and I added a bit of texture with Sakura Glaze pens and a bit of glitter with Gelly Rolls. The backing papers are by Doolicraft, which I'd never heard of and I found them in TK Maxx of all places! The flowers are 3 sizes of punched circles of the dp, distressed and held together with little heart shaped brads.
I'm also entering the card in these challenges:
Drunken Stampers - Serenity now
Stamptacular Sunday - Distress it
Everybody Art Challenge - Handmade flowers
