i appreciate you...

Hello friends!  A quick post with my card for this week's Less is More challenge.   The challenge this week is to make a card that has something that you find up in the air.  I immediately thought of my new Hero Arts/Operation Write Home set:  Happy Birthday.  This set has a fun hot air balloon, a cloud as well as a balloon bouquet.  I used the balloon bouquet and the cloud for my card.

 
I stamped three clouds using pale blue ink and then the balloon bouquet using black ink.  I then stamped the balloon bouquet on three diffrent papers from the BasicGrey Fiction 6x6 pad, trimmed them out and then paper pieced them.  A banner was cut using a My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Layers Stax die and the sentiment stamped on it.  I trimmed the banner, adhered it to the card and then added a little button/twine embellishment.  I seem to be stuck on making those little embellies right now! 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Hero Arts:  Ink: Stampin Up! and Memento; Dies:  My Favorite Things; Button:  PTI; Twine:  The Twinery

Simplicity of design is hard to achieve while still making the card interesting. This is just lovely and what a nice card to receive. Thanks for the description of your process, it so enhances the final artwork.
