I really enjoyed making this single card, deciding where to put the balloons, and masking them off before sponging in the background through a stencil.

It was a 'no pressure' project based on 'past deadline' sketch (CAS Colour and Sketches - where I've just flabberghastedly discovered I was one of their weekly winners) and colour challenges (Color Throwdown), using a set of stamps I'd had on my desk for ages, but hadn't used.

The funny thing was, once I'd made it, and was admiring it on the bookshelf, I realised how many current challenges it fitted! So, having made it 'just for me', I now feel I have reasons to share it.

Curtain Call - Travel On (Balloons just say 'travel' to me)
Sweet Stampin' - Inspired by a Film or Book (The Disney Pixar Film 'Up')
Craft Stamper - Take a Stamp: Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday - Use a Sentiment

After being invited over, it would be rude not to take part at Quirky Crafts: "Let's go on a quirky journey"
