This card uses the stamp set Up, Up and Away. It reminds me of all the hot air balloons we often see where we live. I always chuckle about our dog Millie (now deceased) and her fear of hot air balloons. She would beg and beg for walks but if there was a hot air balloon in sight, she would drag me back home with her tail between her legs. She was petrified of them! They are noisy when they are low, and she was always sensitive to sound.
I used the Pals Paper Arts Sketch #129 and a few new items from the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog including Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, Riding Hood Red 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon, and Adorning Accents Edgelits Die and Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
