Hot Air Balloons

Is everybody out there taking the PILE IT ON CHALLENGE? And if you don't know what I am talking about you - see the post below or follow the link!

Onto the card - I am SERIOUSLY in love with this card, so if you don't like it, please don't burst my balloon (no pun intended!)


These are the challenges this card covers:
  • Believe it or not - this is this week's CPS sketch. It's a little "loosely" interpreted and flipped upside down!
  • 2 Red Bananas asked for at least three patterned papers, and this one has 6!
  • Use It - a new one for me - had this recipe - scraps, bling, die cuts, with a bonus of 4 patterned papers. All scraps (even the base - they are defining scraps as - no 12x12 papers can be harmed in the making of this card), die cuts - used my nestibilities for the sentiment box, again, I used 6 patterned papers and the bling - which you can't see in the photo, but I assure you is there - all the lines on the balloons and the trees are sparkly from my stardust pen - I think that's bling, don't you? (And I'd like to thank Rose for introducing me to this new challenge blog!)
  • Colour Create asked for as many colors of the rainbow as possible - okay, I have blue, green, orange, purple, red, and yellow! I am definitely good on this one!!
And that's about all for this one!! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go check out PILE IT ON!!


***ETA*** This stamps set is from Verve and is called Up, Up & Away! And yes, that would be considered an enabler alert (Lesley!)
