Hello Friends, Stampers, and Family!
Another Challenge Combo!
(My second Post today! Deadlines!)
A Sketch Challenge
Paper Craft Crew #229
(Alas, I missed the Challenge)
A Color Challenge
Sunday Stamps Challenge #145
(Love these colors!)
Although not named...I chose to match these colors
with Stampin'Up! colors:
'Tip Top Taupe'
Here is my take for those two Challenges!
Here is how I stamped the inside of the Card!
And here is the Card with it's stamped to match envelope!
Here is a close-up of the 'tether lines'!
When ever I have seen a 'Hot Air Balloon' I
always noticed the ropes dangling off the basket.
When I inquired to what and why...I was told they were
for securing the 'Hot Air Balloon' to the ground.
When the 'Balloon' is inflated it wants to rise, so they must
tie it down to the ground! When ready to 'fly' it is untied
and allowed to 'take off'!
One of my bucket list items is to ride in one of these...one day
when I get courage to take that risk!
Here are the Stock and Measures:
'Smokey Slate'-Card base, cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" and
folded in half on the score line.
'Tip Top Taupe'-Hot Air Balloon outline
'Peek-A-Boo Peach'-color under 'Balloon' outline
'Calypso Coral'-other color under 'Balloon' outline
'Early Espresso'-color for under 'basket' on 'Balloon'
'Whisper White'-banner, stamped and then fussy-cut, clouds
and inside panel, cut to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered.
'Up & Away Thinlits'-to cut out 'Hot Air Balloon' outline and under colors.

Classic Stampin' Ink:

'Early Espresso'-greeting on banner
'Smoky Slate'-inside sentiment

I really like this card! For a set I was hesitant to get...it has
turned out to be a set I like a lot!
Until the next Post...Blessings and Floating Serenity to you ALL!
