Late Again !

 I did it again.  I missed two more challenges.  I made this card based on a challenge at CASE Study and this card .  I love the idea of the sky behind the cut out.  But I made it Thursday and by then the challenge had moved on to another.  I'm still glad I made this card and will do more with the same technique. The other challenge - well, who cares?    I had fun making this card , there are plenty of challenges, and most importantly, I hope you enjoy it.

The balloon image is a new (for me) Itty Bitty stamp by Unity called Adventurous and the sentiment is from the Ippity set Authentic Man.
The banner Kraft is Funday by My Mind's Eye.
Image is colored with Prisma Pencils
Using a scallop die cut piece, I sponged the blue onto a piece of white card stock.  I really enjoy playing around making sky backgrounds now ever since I saw a tutorial on this technique.  Thank you Angie.

  1. Beautiful card! I find that I always miss challenge deadlines but at least you have a lovely card to show for it!

  2. Wonderful card I love the colourful ballow :)
    Thanks for joining us for Di's Digi Challenge & Good Luck!

  3. Like all things Hot Air Balloon. Wonderful card. The annual Hot Air Balloon Festival here is this weekend. Hubby & I typically go but the # of balloons has decreased each yr and hardly any shape balloons come so we decided to not go this yr. I find I miss challenges also even though I keep a notebook on them because sometimes I cannot access the blog due to a blogger issue and then the date passes when I finally get access to the blog. Oh well, just enjoy the time.
