H2H Photo Challenge

Heart 2 Heart is a Close To My Heart challenge blog and it is AWESOME! If you ever need a kick in the pants to create, visit HERE

This week is a photo challenge. Since I figured out how to transport the inspiration photo (all by myself! I'm so proud!) here it is: 

And here is what I came up with:

I could not get the fabric draping out of my head, so I just went with it! I used a similar color scheme (Sorbet, Dutch Blue, Kraft) and obviously stuck with the striped hot air balloon.

Yes, it took forever to make my balloon. 
And shade my clouds. 
And hand-stitch my string.

And yes, it was worth it!


  1. Your effort was well worth it! That balloon turned out wonderfully, and I like how you finished it off with a bow. Thanks for sharing with us this week at H2H!

  2. Your balloon is awesome! Your card is was time well spent! Love it! Thanks for sharing with us at H2H!

  3. Tina -

    Fabby-dabby-do! All your details are awesome - love how you used the Elemental paper to give pattern to your baloon and your cloud stamping (and shading) is just perfect! Thanks for sharing your lovely art with us at Heart2Heart Challenges!

  4. Your time was definitely well spent! I wanted to incorporate the scallops too but couldn't figure out how. I really like how you did. Great card! Thanks for taking the H2H photo inspiration challenge!

  5. I love this ... it would look great hanging on a wall... it's beautiful...
