UP, UP & AWAY...

Hey there, well I'm bummed...work is going to interfere with my stamping.  *sigh*  That dreaded four-letter word!  I finished this card yesterday but didn't get a chance to post it.  It's another card for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive through Splitcoast Stampers.  Bridget's challenge is called "Things are Lookin' Up".  She said "Hope" makes her want to look up and into the future so the challenge was to create a card with things we would see if we looked up.

I'm using two sets from Our Craft Lounge; Flyin' Birthday and Granny's Support Team.  Can you believe it?  I was able to use that same ribbon from the Granny set again!  I think this makes the third card this week.  The hot-air balloon is from the Flyin' Birthday set and it's on the list to retire.  Click on the link below in the Supplies section and you should be able to find this set for 40% off in the OCL store.  It's a super cute set with great guy images (or in this case girl *wink*)!

There isn't a whole lot to say about this one.  I went with a super simple layout to let the image be the focal point. The background panel and Nestie was sponged with two shades of blue.  A balloon and sentiment were stamped onto the Nestie panel then the balloon was stamped two more times onto white card stock.  They were colored with Copic markers, cut out then layered with foam.  Photo corners were punched and adhered to the card front and inside.  I guess that's about it.

Copic coloring:

Hot-air balloon (inside and out):  RV34, RV11, RV10, C4, C2, C00, E44, E43, E42
