Inspirational Card Sketches

Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge #154 and the cloud pattern from Van Laar Designs played rather well together. Or at least I think so. LOL

I printed the cloud and then flipped it. Sponged some Pool Party ink around the edges. Printed and cut another cloud on dsp for my shadow effect. I punched a large scalloped circle out of dsp and stamped and drew lines on it to respresent my sun. The hot air balloon is a flower petal punched from Build a Blossom punch. I added some twine for the ropes and a tiny square for the basket. The sentiment reads, The sky's the limit. Inside sentiment is Happy Birthday, wishing you a wonderful day.
