In the sky

Today's card was inspired by the challenge over at 
The challenge is to use a printed page as a background
Here's what I came up with:

It's funny the way creativity works. I had no ideas so I looked through my pinterest 
boards for something to spark my interest. I came across this card by Cindy Elam:
I liked the stenciled clouds so that's where that came from.
...and whats a sky without some birds, so I stamped some (Inkadinkado- coastal).
Then I thought of the bunny in the hot air balloon, a stamp from
The Cat's Pajamas (2011) , so I stamped it on white cardstock
colored it with copic markers and fussy cut it out.
I don't know if you can tell it or not, but I had to stamp the center section on a scrap of the background word paper and paperpiece it so that the words would be behind the bunny 
and not just the white paper.
To finish it off, I used die cut letters to spell hello (memory box- abc soup die).

Thanks for looking.

'till next time,


  1. Love it! What a cute image and love the background. Thank you for sharing with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Printed Page Challenge.

  2. This is awesome! How clever you are to paper piece the balloon to hide the word background! LOOKS AMAZING! What fun ... Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood’s ‘Printed Page Background’ challenge and please come back again soon!
