Flyin' High

This is my second post today.  Scroll down for my Valerie card.

I was pondering the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch and had the thought to flip the sketch upside down and use balloons for the images.  At that point, the card came together pretty quickly.  I used the colors from Pals Paper Arts and the Birthday/Twine theme from Friday Mashup.  I decided to go SUO with this card as I haven't shown many SU cards on my blog lately.

I started with a Soft Sky card base and stamped the sentiment in Real Red.  I then stamped the balloons in Soft Sky.  I then poked a hole under each balloon and through the 'h' in Birthday and threaded some white baker's twine through the holes.  BTW, this took me longer than making the whole card LOL.  I tied little bows and used glue dots to adhere them under the balloons.

The whole Whisper White panel is popped up on dimensionals.  And here's a shot of the very simple inside (so far I've stuck to my crafting resolution of finishing the inside when I actually make the card).

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Up Up and Away, Sassy Salutations
Ink:  Real Red, Soft Sky
Cardstock:  Soft Sky, Whisper White
Accessories:  White Baker's Twine

Karren, I love the baloons, inside and out! And I think your resolution is wonderful, I need to follow it. I have about 10 cards on my desk that need the insides finished! Thanks for joining us at Pals Paper Arts this week.

Such a great idea for your card, Karren! Love how you used the hot air balloons as ballons. It's such a clean and simple card, but so darn cute! Thanks for playing with us at the Friday Mashup.
