FTL 179

Good Sunday morning, Friends! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! February is quickly coming to a close! Wow! Not much on our agenda today. I probably should do some grocery shopping but we will see. I know I do have to get some laundry done. And I want to start on another of my stitching projects. These new ones that I got go really fast! And they are really cute, too! Not that I am thinking of Christmas already, but they will make great gifts! Two of them I am doing are for Nick's teachers. Hope they like them!

Today's card was inspired by the Fall-To-Layout at Clean&Simple. I kept mine very clean and simple and used the colors from the Big Top Birthday designer paper pack. I really liked the bright colors and haven't used many of them, yet. But summer is coming! I also pulled out a set I haven't used in a while, Up, Up and Away. Anyway, I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped the greeting in Old Olive, the balloon basket and the clouds and birds in Tempting Turquoise. Then I stamped the clouds again on a scrap piece of Whisper White along with the balloon in Real Red and the tail in Daffodil Delight. I cut these out and adhered the biggest cloud to the front of the balloon and the tail to the back of the balloon and popped it up on the panel. Then I added two mini brads under the greeting and popped the whole panel up onto the card base of Whisper White. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
