Hot Air Balloon Card

Hi everyone, I am back with another card that is made with ScrappyDew files!  The cuts on this card were part of the latest free file that they sent out in their newsletter.  You can get this adorable hot air balloon and bear free for a limited time (No longer free, but is part of the ScrappyDew Vault).  After the next newsletter comes out, this will be moved into the ScrappyDew vault with all the other past freebies.

This card is very simple because I wanted it to reflect the free feeling of the balloon floating up in the sky.
All of the patterned papers are from K&Company's Wild Saffron paper pack.   I added the banner in the background by just cutting triangles from the patterned paper scraps. The yellow section of the balloon is embossed using a striped embossing folder. The balloon is popped up with foam adhesive as well.

I hope you are having a wonderfully crafty day!
