Ok, does the blog title give away my age? ;) I wanted something catchy for the balloon motif used as my parents' anniversary card and that's where my brain went! So, I'll go with it. Now I can't get that song out of my head......
I had the Balloon Ride papers and hadn't really done anything with them yet. This challenge was great timing; I used the papers to make 2 cards today! This card is going over to Color My Heart Color Dare where we are challenged to use the colors from Balloon Ride or Crystal Blue, Creme Brulee and Sorbet.
All of the papers are from Balloon Ride. The flowers and vines (branches) were cut from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. The little gems are from the Mocha Gems (retired). I used an embossing folder I won in a contest! I think it is Darice.
While I was working with Balloon Ride I decided to make a Birthday card for my stash. I used Balloon Ride, Bronze Glitter Trim, Sparkle Gems Tan/Brown (retired), Crystal Blue CS, and the Joyful Birthday stamp set. I love the bronze trim on the Balloon Ride paper! This is going over to Heart 2 Heart where the challenge is Rhapsody in Blue. The challenge is to use Blue and a musical motif is a bonus! See the music on the blue balloon!
