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.


Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: 

Paper: Splendour Paper Pack (ret.), Topiary Cardstock, Pear Cardstock, Moonstruck Cardstock, White Daisy Cardstock, White Daisy Card Base
Stamps: Over the Rainbow (ret.)
Inks: Pear, Moonstruck
Accessories: Scallop Punch (SU), Art Philosophy Cartridge, Bitty Sparkles, Foam Tape, Baker's Twine (not CTMH), Green Button Collection
