Up, Up, and Away

Happy Monday! Yesterday we started out the day with rain, but it turned into a day like you see in my card below--gloriously sunny with some puffy clouds.

This is another card using MFT's new Inspired By Up, Up and Away. I love these vintage-looking balloons that work equally as well with bright colors, as I'm using here, as the first one I did that uses a more subdued color palette, that you can see HERE.

My colorful paper is Echo Park's A Walk In the Park in 6 x 6 size. Yummy colors in card making scale--a winning combo! I stamped my balloons and cut them out, then added some Flat Bottom Die-namics clouds, a Double Scallop Border Die-namics die, and I used the so-very-versatile Notched Tag Die-namics die for my sentiment tag. I was trying to suggest a park with a scallop topped fence with the balloons flying overhead. Did it work?

Here's the inside, somewhat more subdued ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I always love it when you do!
