It's a Bird, It's a Plane, No... it's a Challenge!

This week I am trying to participate in two challenges. The first is CAS-ual Friday's CFC64 On Cloud 9. This week's challenge asked us to make a clean and simple card with the sky as our inspiration. I knew right away that I was going to use the hot air balloons in Stampin' Up's Up, Up and Away set. Was that too many ups?

The second challenge is Pals Paper Arts PPA 140 color challenge this week of Summer Starfruit, Real Red, and Marina Mist.

Although some of my color's don't look a vibrant in this picture, I think the color combo worked well. I stamped on the DSP for something extra and found an old Crumb Cake corduroy button for a little something sweet. I also got to experiment with the Finishing Touches framelits as well. It was a simple and fun layout that can be used time and time again.
