Ballooning

Would I ever love to go up in a hot air balloon.  We see them a lot right now flying near the house.  The other day they flew right over us...so low too, we could see and hear the woosh of the flame.  They must have been landing really close by.  I so love seeing the colors of the balloons in the sky.

Today I'm playing in the TCP Color Challenge, and I even have the correct challenge for the correct week!  :)


Such rich colors aren't they?  And I took a little imaginary trip on this balloon ....


I pulled out the very cute TCP Set, Away We Go, and used the colors in the balloon from the challenge.  I used an older sketch from Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday.  


There's a little striped embossing on the daffodil strip, some old SU papers, some faceted gems in pairs and then the fun polka dotted ribbon tied into the Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Die.  

Copics Used:  C1, C2, C5, YG0000, YG61, YG63, YG67, Y11, Y13, Y15, B21, B34, B37, B39, BV00

Ciao baby!  See you soon!
