Sky's the Limit

Hello Everybody!

Yes you can!  Whatever it is you want to do!  That is what my card is about anyways! :)

In the next wee hours the challenge for this week's Inkspirational Challenge #15 will be ending but if you act now you too can play!

Here is this week's photo challenge:

So pretty and totally spring.  I was inspired by the colors.

I have been on a hot air balloon kick here of late.  And tonight is no exceptional-however instead of a grungy steampunk hot air balloon, I went with The Alley Ways hot air balloon (love is in the air set) and a saying from their Work it out set.

I embossed the blue Bazzill cardstock.  I found the cloud (from Cricut) in my die cut box (YAY!) and divided it.  I stamped the balloon but the pink Copic marker I have wasn't pink enough.  So I restamped the balloon on a scratch piece that had worn lipstick Distress Stain on it from an earlier project.  Success!  And then I paper pieced the top part onto the rest of my balloon.  And I pop dotted the hot air balloon too.  You can see the shadow in the picture.

Thank you for stopping by today.  It's a sad day today in the US because of what happened in Boston.  My heart and prayers go out to those families and people.

Until next time my friends....have a good night.
