Floating By to Say Hi!

Hi All!  I hope your weekend is going well.  I wanted to pop in to share this card.  I have been wanting to learn how to make those great sky backgrounds with the big fluffy clouds and lo and behold, I found this great tutorial from Suzanne Dean - youtube video here!  Now, she shows the technique of making the sky around your image but for this card, I knew I was going to pop up the image and balloons so I went ahead and did the background first.  My image, "Balloon Ants," comes from Doodle Pantry and while I used the outline of the image, Laurie offers a colored version *complete with matching digi paper!!* as well.  I made the rest of the balloons by cutting them on my Cricut using the Celebrations cartridge and varying the sizes of the balloons to create a sky full of balloons some higher and some farther away.  The sentiment came with the image - Laurie rocks! not only do you get amazing images, but you get sentiments too and sometimes even matching digi papers :)  There is still time to enter the Doodle Pantry Challenge and all you have to do is use a Doodle Pantry image (have I mentioned Laurie has great FREEBIES too?).  Happy Crafting! <3 Lisa
