Up, Up, and Away

Ashley over at Welch Creations has posted a challenge to make a shaped card. I decided to join in by creating this hot air balloon card for my sweet cousin.
The balloon is from LD Balloon Craze. I used Make-the-Cut to import the file straight from my LD library. For the card base a made a shadow layer with blackout slightly larger than the balloon itself. I copied the image, reflected it vertically, then welded the two shadows at the top.
The pattern paper is from DCWV Nana's Kids Stack. I used stickles to accent the ribbon and small gems for a little bling. I embossed the basket using the Diamonds in the Rough folder and popped it using foam pop dots.

Have a blessed day!
