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:
