Up Up and Away!

I just love the different ways you can use this "Sweet Centers" stamp set! I havn't even worked on the Halloween set...that is next! but for Our Creative Corner challenge I needed to use pink, white and brown. I stamped the base of the hot air balloon in Basic Brown on Whisper White cardstock, then punched out the circle with the new 1 3/4 inch punch. I then punched out a pink polka dot and brown polka dot circle. I mounted the balloon base on my Chocolate Chip cardstock. Folding the pink and brown circles in half, I glued them together and created the dimention to the balloon. They got glued down and after adding some Pretty in Pink brads I adhered the entire balloon image. Embellished with a little circle punch and some scallop edging, I think this card is going to "blow" someone away when they receive it!

This is super cute!! I love the way you 3-D'd the hot air balloon, especially the brown on the pink! Really great take on the OCC challenge this week. So happy you could play along with us.
