This was a fun and simple card to make. Each balloon is cut out with detail scissors. The pink gingham balloon is popped up with 3D foam squares to give it dimension. I've never had any hot air balloon stamps, so I was happy to make a card that featured them. About 10 miles from where I live you can see them setting off into the sky every now and then. It is quite a sight!

Awesome shimmer in your fun card Tara!

Thanks Ellen. I definitely 'over shimmered'. A little goes a long way with this little bottle. After it sat overnight the gingham balloon curled up, which is a lesson learned, since it was such thin paper. It did kind of make it more 3-D though.

Such sweet balloons, Tara! And am loving that shimmer I am seeing to your card. How cool for you that you can see hot air balloons from where you live. They are so colorful and festive, it must be a joy to witness on a regular basis.
