Hot Air

Balloons...its all the rage.  You've seen them - everywhere - and I don't mean in the sky.  They are so hot and trendy right now.  I've always been obsessed with them, I mean who doesn't want to go for a ride in one?  Oh the opportunity will present itself...someday...and I will take full advantage of it.  Until then, I will have to live vicariously thru my paper crafting.

A special thanks to Cath a Moxie Fab for enabling my mild obsession.  Check out her current challenge, In My Beautiful Balloon.  I made this card for it.  Does the layout look familar?...remember the Paper Crafts Go-To-Sketches call?....  I've had this paper for a while and needed to put it to good use.  It's such a  graphic pattern, that I wanted to have a layout that showed it off without overwhelming the card.  I like the effect, and the added little addition on the bottom corner I just love!
