Smiles across the miles...

This is such a fun card, who doesn't love hot air balloons?! They're just made to make you smile!  For this card I stamped a piece of Memory Box cardstock with the clouds in white. I wanted a really pale blue color for the sky instead of the deeper Aqua Mist or Spring Rain. I finally used my cloud dies on felt, and added a little stitching around their edges with embroidery floss. 

I colored the balloons with Copics, glittered them up with some Stickles, too. I did that ribbon thing-y that Nichole Heady does a lot on her cards. I like it, very different from the usual bows. 

Thanks for looking, Happy Friday everyone!
