Up, Up and Away!

Happy Friday! I'm stopping in with a card for the new Viva la Verve sketch by Stacey. This is a really fun one, and there's also a gorgeous inspiration photo you can combine with the sketch if wished!

I focused on the sketch for my card.

I've used the fabulous Up Up and Away stamp set to create a little scene. The hot air balloon was paper pieced and the clouds were shaded with copics.

The focal sentiment is stamped on a Banner Bundle die cut and sponged while still in the die. 

Here's a peek inside my card...

Be sure to stop by the Viva la Verve blog for some AMAZING inspiration from my fellow divas! If you play along, you could win $100 to spend on some Verve of your own!

  1. Great take on the sketch. Love the balloon and clouds.

  2. That's such a fabulous take on what looks to me like a really complicated sketch! I'd have taken one look and run to hide, but you created something gorgeous instead! Jo x

  3. Absolutely delightful. Love how all the elements form a beautiful whole.
