Balloon

Evening everyone!! Got into my crafty room after church today. Sure have missed it most of this past week. Busy one at work and no time to craft. I made a card for a couple of challenges. First is Bitten By The Bug 2. Their challenge that started last Monday is Fly Away!-Hot Air Balloon. Make a project using a Cricut cut of a Hot Air Balloon. And if you don't have a cart with one on it, you can opt to use an airplane. The other challenge I am entering is the one over at Action Wobbles Challenge. For their challenge you are to have something on your project that starts with a 'B' and of course an action wobble. I pulled out my Pop-Up Neighborhood Cartridge to cut my Hot Air 'B'alloon. It can be found on page 69 in the booklet. I cut the one on the front at 4 inches and the one for the inside at 2 inches. I decided to step outside of my funsey cards zone and went with some Tim Holtz Lost And Found paper for my cuts and bg papers. The brown card base and sentiment piece are from my stash. Check out the map on the balloon!! I placed it so the United States would be where it can be seen. Pretty cool huh?!! I inked everything with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Ink. The sentiment is from the Ticket Talk 2 stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. Then I mounted my Balloon on an action wobble!! So fun!!!!!! Hope y'all like my card!!!! :)
