Hot Air Balloon Birthday

 It's a public holiday here today so I got some much needed crafty time.  The first thing I did (after dithering over what podcast to listen to...) was play along with Freshly Made Sketches.  I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left and went from there.  This Lawn Fawn hot air balloon is an old favourite and I paired it with some WPlus9 clouds.  I had fun colouring and then got brave and gave my second card a not blue sky!  Who am I???

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Crisp Cantaloupe, Bashful Blue) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Balloon from Blue Skies, Sentiment from Happy Everything) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Cloud border) Wplus9
Markers:  (R32, YR00, YR31, YG41, B12, B63) Copic
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard and Oyster Grey Crystal Drops) Tonic

What a fun and creative use of the sketch!!! LOVE the colorful hot air balloons on the "stripe" of clouds! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

I must try these podcasts.... the other thing I'm looking at is Audible books as we have a 35hour car journey coming up! Maybe podcasts could be fun too. Looks like you had fun with these bright balloons Jen, you know I love me a cheery card!
