H2H Challenge - Blue Skies

This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is a photo challenge. I usually find these difficult but a soon as I looked at today's photo, I knew exactly which stamp set I wanted to use - an oldie, but a goodie! We have been experiencing unusually warm weather here in Central Ontario and I am loving every minute of it. This weekend, I saw some hot air balloons over the lake and when I saw them in the photo for the challenge, I knew I had to use them in my card. The inspiration photo is shown below my card.

Enjoy, 
Alyson
