Inspired

For the OWH blog hop, scroll down a few or click here.

I just love it when everything comes together on a card the way I imagined it. Today's card was one of those.

I don't remember how, but a blogger a follow linked to a challenge I had never heard of, For Your Inspiration. Not sure if I'll be playing along regularly, but I do love this week's inspiration photo:

I have no papercrafting products that have hot-air balloons on them. So I started thinking about helium balloons....

Not sure where that would take me, I remembered Laurie's Pinterest challenge. So I popped on over, and searched for "girl holding balloons." I found this amazing image- by graffiti artist Banksy:

(by the way, Dave has been bugging me for months to watch "Exit Through the Gift Shop"- he loved it!)

Pair the fun stripes and colors from the first image with the girl from the second, and you get this:



The frame, girl, and balloons are all popped up with foam tape, and I made the strings of the balloons with pieces of thread all glued in place. My sentiment is from SP and Co- Mini Card Creations II.

Bye!
