Hot Air Balloon - Dreams

Hi today I have a card to share with you using a 
Close to My Heart stamp and pack of paper.
Over at the Outlawz they have a challenge every Sunday
that is called Songs & Rhymes, this week the song is
"Up Up & Away".
I knew right away what I wanted to do, I had had this
hot air balloon stamp and paper pack called Balloon Ride
for several years and it was perfect for this theme.

I stamped the image and then colored it with my Copic
markers trying to match the colors in the paper.  I cut it out using a
Gina Marie Die.  This card also follows the sketch this week
I kind of flipped the sketch a bit to make it work with my image.
The sentiment is a Unity stamp and thought it went well
with the image.

Thanks for stopping by hope you are having a great weekend.

What wonderful papers to accompany this image for a soft, vintage look. The sketch looks great turned on its side.
Thanks so much for playing along at AHSC!

I remember this paper from quite a while ago! The stamped image fits perfectly with the paper and I love that you turned the sketch on its side (great minds think alike...) Thanks for sharing with us at Atlantic Hearts!

Wow, Doona, this is lovely! I always liked that paper kit but struggled with it a bit myself, but you make me want to dig it out again. Your coloring is awesome and that die is perfect, it looks like a cloud. Great take on the sketch, too. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
