Fly Away

There are lots of things to celebrate at this time of year!  The Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Team was challenged this month to use the word “fly” as their inspiration.  I started with the inspirational sentiment from Really Good Greetings – thinking “graduation” – and did this card.  

I paper pieced a hot air balloon and added it to the Lucy Label insert.  I love this insert because you can use it for anything!  The “bravo” is from  A Dozen Thoughts.  The Lace tape is retiring – hurry!  Then I added a little line of flags to help celebrate the big event.  Here’s a look at the “mechanics” of the card –

Stamp Sets – A Dozen Thoughts, Really Good Greetings
Cardstock – Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Watercolor Wonder DSP
Ink – Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango
Etc – Lucy Label die, 1 3/4″ circle punch, Candy Dots, Doily tape, flag punch

Celebrating is a lot of fun!  Hugs, Fran
