Hey Friends, how's your week going? I'm well but my Brother in Law is in the hospital with an unknown illness. So I got right to work last night and made him a card with this very little-used set I got from Whimsy Stamps called "Up, Up and Away".
I started by looking for a sketch, as I always do when I don't know where to start. I found Karen's wonderful sketch for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 286. When I saw the circle, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop for a inked cloud scene to place the hot air balloons on. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps too and coordinates with the stamp and die set. The paper is Echo Park Jack and Jill Boy. Love it!
Some textured trim and PPP sparkling clear sequins finish it off. I love it when my vision for a card works. I knew this set would be great for masculine get well cards.
Some other challenges this card fits are:
