Happy Birthday!

 
 
Hi there,
 
This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down to view
photos of my first post done earlier today for a walk with me in my back yard! 
 
I want to share with you the above card that I'm entering over at Dynamic Duos!  It's been awhile since I played with their challenge.  The challenge called for two colors of pacific point and basic black.  I just love that color of blue!  I often dressed my son in that color blue when he was young to bring out his beautiful blue eyes!:)
 
Anyways, I knew I wanted to start with the bright blue card base and layer with black and white.  The stamp set is from Stampin' Up.  Don't you just love those sweet hot air balloons?  I fussy cut them and popped them up on dimensionals and stamped the background with clouds.  I wanted to give the illusion that the hot air balloons were up in the air from the hillside. Pretty black pearls and twine were added to finish off the card. 


Ok, friends, that's it for now.  Please take care and have a wonderful day!  Thanks so much for dropping by, hugs!

Supplies:

Paper:  Paper Studio
Stamps:  SU(Up,Up,&Away)
Ink:  SU(Pacific Point, Black)
