MOJO #90 - Up and Away Balloon



I saw the sketch for Mojo #90, and I just had to try this out. I just got this cute hot air balloon set from Verve last week, and I knew this balloon would be perfect with this sketch.

I paper pieced the balloon and the basket with some Celery designer paper, and the other designer papers are from the Tea Party collection from Stampin Up. It was fun to play with pink and green colors for this card. I added the swirls to give the card a little "movement" to go with the hot air balloon.

I just wanted to share this quick and fun little card before I head off to bed. It is way past my bedtime. Now I have to go get my beauty sleep before I go to work tomorrow. :-) Nighty night!
