I am not fond of heights and will admit riding up in the sky in a balloon never made my bucket list. A friend gave us the gift of riding in a Hot Air Balloon. It is pretty costly and I didn't know how to graciously not accept them. So off we went and I have to tell you it was the most amazing thing in the world.
Peaceful, quiet and no sense of height it is hard to describe. Here is cut poem about hot air balloons.
Hot Air Balloon
I’m leaving town I’ll be back soon
I’m taking a ride in a hot air balloon.
The noise is loud when the burners fire.
The heat takes me up higher and higher.
I float in the sky.
It’s a wonderful thing.
Now I know why flying birds sing.

Sketches are open to interpretation. You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.
I realized when I was posting this photo that the small balloon should be behind the right balloon to give it the proper perspective. So next time I will put my smaller balloon behind. I love stamp sets that have coordinating framelits making it so easy without any fussy cutting.
You can see below the list of things I used to create this card. I hope you enjoyed today's case! I would love to hear if you created a card using the case. I have posted the sketch on my Facebook page if you stamp a card I would love to have you share it there.
