Up, Up and Away

Hi and welcome to another Freshly Made Sketch challenge.  This week, it's Linda Callahan's sketch we're working with and it's a fun one.

I had several ideas for this sketch but ended up going with a hot air balloon and cloud theme.

For this card, I went with a fresh aqua, red and white color scheme.  I created cut files for my images using my Silhouette then after cutting them out, I stamped the images and colored with Copics.  The sentiment is from a new-to-me set called Laurels by Avery Elle.  I just love the font!  The curved bottom is also from a new-to-me die from Spellbinders.  

I hope you've checked out the rest of the Design Team's cards.  They're fantastic!  

Thanks for looking.

Stamps:  Avery Elle, CTMH
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Real Red
Accessories:  Cloudy Day EF, square nesties, curved borders nesties, white baker's twine, copic markers
