Hot Air Balloons - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  Good here and am liking that spring is just around the corner.  We still have snow but the sun is strong these days and has enough heat to melt it quick.  Spring is my favourite time of year and I always look forward to it.
Today's card uses  the 1151 Rainbow Sky and 1472 Vintage Balloon Race dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I did a wet on wet technique using distress inks to create the background and have a tutorial on how it was created over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
Supplies:
Miscellaneous:  Navy cardstock, white cardstock, watercolour paper, Clear Wink of Stella pen, Stormy Sky and Scattered Straw distress ink, foam dots

What fun to be up and away in a hot air balloon! Some say that I am full of hot air - well I still haven't floated away!!
Stay grounded Marilyn, you have a lot of wonderful cards still to be made.
