CAS-ual Fridays #64

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is things you would see in the sky.  Well, that was an easy one for me--where I live, there are always brightly colored hot air balloons in the sky all summer.

I used a white Fabulous Frames die cut I had cut when I was in temporary possession of the dies last week (perks of being a shipping buddy), and stamped polka dots in Lemon Tart   I mounted everything on a Lemon Tart card base stamped with Fresh Snow polka dots for a reverse look.  Now, I am wondering if I should have left the card base plain?  Oh, well--this card will be going to my daughter at camp next week, and I know she will like it either way.

Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Up, Up and Away & Sentiments, Polka Dot Basics II
Paper:  Lemon Tart, White, Spring Rain
Ink:  Lemon Tart, Fresh Snow, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other:  Balloon, Fabulous Frames Dies, Sunshine IP, Lil Inker Cloud & Sun Dies, Copic markers

Thanks for Visiting
