Happy Wednesday!! As this post goes live, I am camping (well, I'm in a cabin) with my family in upstate New York. Yeay for vacation but not a lot of access to the internet, yikes! Anyway, it's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built. And this week we have an easy one for you: Anything Goes!
I created this fun card for the birthday of a family friend turning 17. I just gave it to him, and he just wanted to sit there and spin the balloon around. : ) I think it was a hit! The circle was cut out of the front panel (which was sponged for a sky look) and the largest hot air balloon is suspended in the middle with some jewelry beading wire. The smaller balloons are stamped on the inside and I sponged a sky background in there as well.
And this photo shows the inside:
