stamp 709

for the Simon Says Monday challenge TRAVEL….this card was inspired by a long ago trip to Colorado where we saw the balloons rising in the valley. We were up in the mountains.  The balloon and cloud image is cut from an old Simon Kit DP that i still have parts of.  The background paper is an old Afternoon Muse pack that conveniently had the flags and world grid lines on it. I added a die cut pine bough not sure if it’s memory box or impression obsessions.  I love how this turned out.  Would never have really thought to put these elements together without the challenge.  Thank you Simon.   It’s a guy card for a former Colorado resident.

  1. Very cool with your kokopellis serenading the balloon launch. I do like that pine branch, like you are peeking out at the scene from the wilderness.

  2. Great card and I love the detail you've added around the image! Thank you so much for sharing and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog... :)
