~*~ Fab Friday's with Sugar Creek Hollow ~*~

Happy Friday to you! 


It's Friday ~ and Friday's mean  a new Fabulous Friday with Sugar Creek Hollow creation ~ and here's mine for you , using a new image called "Vintage Balloon".  

I was inspired by this painting from dh's office ~ the photo doesn't do justice to the vibrancy or intensity of the colors, but it's wonderful.  

Using Basic Grey's Marrakech papers, I paper pieced the balloon and used coordinating cardstock to create my card for you this week: 


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to see what the rest of the DT have made for you -
