Up, up and away

I'm back with another card for the new sketch challenge this week. I loved this sketch and the chance to get some last minute crafting in before we begin our big weekend project... we are remodeling the bathroom! Here's the inspiration sketch:
My take is bright and cheery, using the newest Studio Calico stamp set, some patterned paper for piecing and the Die-namics "Snowdrifts" die set for the hillside.

I added a little bit of sparkle by brushing Wink of Stella over the balloon. I love the bits of dimension too. This card just makes me happy!

So now if you'll excuse me, I've got to change into some work clothes and get to work on the remodel. Happy crafting, or tile laying, or painting... whatever you may be up to!

I adore the tone on tone of the blue clouds on the blue sky. I need to do this more often!
