What a fun challenge! I love adding clouds! Usually I sponge them in or use some little cloud punches I have, but since this balloon is so big, I went w/ an old Sizzix cloud die because the scale was a little better.
The images are from DRS Designs and the balloon was all paper pieced w/ punched scraps the borders were drawn w/ gel pens and a template. Close ups are on blog :) The Write Stuff

This is so adorable. I love the bright colors you chose which would fit tomorrow's free for all (which has been posted early) - LOL. Your paper piecing is wonderful. Have yet to do that technique. TFS.
