Up, up and away

I love this new set by Papertrey Ink. I wasn't sure how much I would like some of the distressed images, but once the image is stamped, I don't even notice the distressing much. I stamped the hot air balloons and focal panel without much of a plan and thought I would just do a neutral card front. When I went to put everything together, something was missing. I went through my patterned paper and couldn't believe how well this piece by Comso Cricket matched the colors I had already used! I am really happy with how this card turned out! I also used the "hill" from Wonderfully Whimsical and a sentiment from Enjoy the Ride.

Love those bright balloons, and great idea to use the hill stamp from Wonderfully Whimsical! I'm really looking forward to playing with this set when it arrives!

Erica..what a great card. I totally told myself I wasn't going to get that set. That I didn't like it and all, but this card is pushing me a little closer to the buy button over at PTI. I love how you used the hills with it ad I am a total sucker for patterned paper...lol
