Hello!! I made this card for Beate's challenge for Dare to Get Dirty 2012. I used LOTS of buttons (MFT) to create a fun hot air balloon. The balloon strings are hand stitched with embroidery floss. The basket was created using the Designer Labels 1 Die-namics and corrugated cardboard (I cut the label in half), and the cute little birdie was cut using the Notched Tag Die-namics.
This card was completely inspired by a scrapbook layout (and a digital one to boot!) I saw on pinterest. I just had to recreate it!! Here is the original layout.
Come play along with us this week in Dare to Get Dirty! - we have a week of amazing challenges and chatter and prizes!
