Up, Up and Away

August 20th we had our first card club meeting of the new year and we had a fabulous time. Our fearless leader, Kim, designed a card for us to make that was based on a photo she had taken. Earlier in the summer she had gone to the Panquitch Valley Balloon Rally and took this:

And this is the card we made:
I hadn't planned on getting this stamp set from StampinUp since I have a really cute Hot Air Balloon set from Verve but after making this card it just had to come live with me. Yep, that Kim knows how to sell!

Thanks Katie! I loved creating this card. I had a picture stuck in my head and this is what came out on paper. I had so much fun watching the balloons fill with air and rise. Then the balloons landed as it was getting dark right in the streets if Panguitch. Then they would light up the balloons when it became dark. Such a wonderful memory. Thanks for posting this fun card.
