Fly Away! BBTB2 Challenge!!

Hi all my crafty friends it is Monday and you know what that means-yep another week gone by. lol That and it is time for another BBTB2 challenge! Our super sweet DT sister Jeri gave us the challenge of using a hot air balloon or a plane.  Now it was a busy week for me last week and the weekend was even busier, so my card lacks much imagination and I kept it very simple. I did the ever so popular stamping technique but with embossing folders instead, a little chalk (hard to see in the pic) on the embossing, my hot air balloon and a sentiment. I used the Devine Swirls embossing folder and Summer in Pair Cricut cart along with Lori's Garden Imagine card to flood fill both layers on my hot air balloon.  A stamped sentiment from My Creative Time and added some bling from CTMH.  See...talk about simple, easy peasy lemon squeazy.  Not very exciting I have to admit, but effective.  My DT sister have some fabulous creations using a hot air balloons and or a plane, please go check them out. I promise you won't be disappointed.  And why you are at it join us in this newest challenge!  Just be sure to read and follow our simple rules.  Can't wait to see your creations using a hot air balloon or a plane!  Until next time...happy crafting!

This is too cool, Brenda. What a fabulous technique and I'm so glad you shared it because I've never done anything like that. I didn't even realize it was embossed until I read your post and looked closer. You betcha I'm going to be using your inspiration in the future because I just love it. Thanks so very much for being able to work my challenge into your busy schedule. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it, my friend. {{HUGS}}
