This one is just pure fun. I seem to have a thing for the cute hot air balloon images SU! comes out with and I was eager to play with the one from the You're Amazing set. I selected some Baja Breeze Designer paper from the Floral District collection to create the background sky. I used other papers from this same pack to create the background pieces and handcut a scallop border out of the flowery paper (following the flowers outline to create the scallops).
Since there was some orange in the Designer paper, I thought I would pull out my Tango Tangerine embossing powder to make the sentiment stand out. Clouds were created using the Cupcake punch, and the hot air balloons were colored with markers, handcut and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I added a bow made out of the new stitched grosgrain ribbon and decorated the middle of the bow with a Brights Designer button with a pearl in the center.
I don't know that this card made it to the sample boards, I haven't spotted it in any pictures. If you've seen it at Convention, let me know!
