Flying Balloons

Flying Balloons cu 08622
The Clean & Simple Challenge today (CAS366) is to have an element extend beyond the edge of the card base. My yellow balloon rises just above the top edge of the card. I also had the MIX Challenge (MIX162) from last Friday in mind when I made this by using only primary colors.

I had a water color bg in my stash (I tend to make a bunch at a time for use later on) & I used the part of it that only had the red & yellow. There’s a little blue creeping in on the right, but not much. The two hot air balloons were stamped, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine then fussy cut. I also added one extra center panel  (a little elevated) on each balloon. The little curved white panel w/ the window cut out was a left over so I cut the bottom of the w/c panel to match. Added the greeting & some sequins  & done!

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
