I apparently have too much time on my hands, or it's the fact that the cold temperatures and feet of snow outside, but I'm feeling quite comfortable in my craft room :) I was browsing some blogs and came across another challenge this morning from Friday Mashup. This week you can either do the sketch challenge, an "in flight" theme, or mashup the two and do both.
Here is the sketch:
So I don't quite have the layout for the sketch, but I just so happen to finish this card this morning for my niece and I think a hot air balloon counts as "in flight". Her birthday is Monday and her card will certainly be late, but she'll be in Disney anyway, so it'll be there waiting when she returns :)
I wanted to use the balloon framelits but did not necessarily plan on the hot air balloon. But I'm glad I switched gears to match the clouds from the Sweet Dreams DSP from Stampin' Up! This DSP is cute huh? :) I used crisp cantaloupe and early espresso door the card base.
To get the glitter look I took a sticky round and added strips of the DSP leaving space for glitter. I got this idea here from Jane Lee. And like she said, you get to wear glitter all day, week, year, eternity. Haha! I think I'm starting to hate glitter as much as my husband. But hey, it adds a little extra sparkle and what 7 year old doesn't like sparkly stuff? :)
The words I made with the alphabet rotary stamp. It's so worth $10! I've used it many many times lately! The possibilities are endless!
I hope you this inspired you today to get creative! Try the sketch out yourself! Have a wonderful day!
