Adventure!


My title certainly captures the journey of creating this card. Holy smokes did this one have some twists and turns! It was just one of those days and this simple card took way too long! Anyway, as luck would have it, it fits into a couple of challenges.


I've used this week's CAS(E) This Sketch, colors from The Card Concept and theme from City Crafter Challenge Blog. My balloon and sentiment are by Pretty Pink Posh. The balloon is popped up with foam tape for added interest. I added the dry embossed panel for a bit of whimsy then surrounded it with a thin red mat as a nod to the curtain in the mirror. Hope you like it!



Thanks for visiting!

You know what they say about plans, Lisa, but this turned out darling so whatever turns it took you worked through them. I love the colors and that balloon. I'd love to go up in one again.

Sometimes cards are a bit like petulant children, aren't they? Whatever the fight it put up, Lisa, it turned out to be sensational!! Hugs, Darnell

Oh no! Those days can really be a stinker! But your card is absolutely beautiful and I would have never known at all! I adore the sentiment - how true is that? Adorable little air balloon and rays too :)

Simply perfect, Lisa! You captured the free spirt of the photo, and made it your own! Why is it that the simple cards give us the most trouble!!! This is bright clean and happy.
Love it! So glad you stuck with it and played along at the Card Concept~

I have those simple cards that take forever and 9 times out of 10, I still don't love them even after the struggle to make it right! But I do love yours. The balloon is so sweet and I love the look of the embossing.
