Sky's the Limit...

The balloon seems to stand still in the air while the earth flies past underneath. -Alberto Santos-Dumont.OK, I think I have an addiction to kraft cardstock all of a sudden! I have made 3 cards in the last week and all three were on Kraft card bases. Whats not to Love, right???? I love that I can add white ink to the edges for detail and it is neutral enough for any color combination.

This card is for this week's Cupcake Inspiration challenge, I used the Hot Air Balloon image from our sponsor, Glitterbabe Digis. I Love Hot Air Balloons, they are so fun and amazing to me...I actually got to ride in one once over the San Diego coast, it was Amazing!!!!!

Supplies: Stamps: Hot Air Balloon (Glitterbabe Digis,) Sky's the Limit sentiment (Greeting Farm) Paper: Kraft, White CS (PTI) Ink: Printer, Copic Markers, Memento Black, Craft White Misc: Polka Dots CB Folder, Taffeta Ribbon, Vintage Button, Pop Up Glue Dots, Divine Twine
