One of the images I picked was Java Hot Air Balloon. I knew when I saw it exactly what I wanted to do with it (I LOVE when that happens, don't you?!). It is a CAS card, not like me, but this is actually what I pictured, so I'm glad it worked out! lol!

I used four of the image, each sized differently, and then created my cloud background in PhotoShop. If you look closely at the balloons, the brown strips of the balloon are made up of a bunch of coffee beans. I was sorry I lost the detail of the beans when I shrunk my balloons down enough to have them all in the space I needed. :0( My image and the base layer for it were cut using Spellbinders dies. I've been stuck on these decled rectangles for a week, or so. I just love them! I added the flags using some CTMH Waxy Flax. I like it a little better than hemp twine - you can shape it and it stays a bit better. It's a lot like dental floss. lol!
I used my new EK Success Mini Pendants punch for my flags, and Sizzix Strip for the alphabet letters.
That's it, folks! Just quick and simple again today! If you like my card, please consider checking out my other creations, and I'd love to have you follow me. ======>>
