Paris By Air

My niece and sister-in-law just completed a hot air balloon ride this week over the skies of Southern California. I think it sounds exciting, but I would be scared to death to do it!

This gorgeous collage stamp from I Brake For Stamps is available three different ways. I have used the
Large Paris Balloon Collage, which is 3 x 4". My card is 5 1/2" square. The Small Paris Balloon Collage is 1 3/4 x 21/4". Both are available in the beautiful Paris and Heart Collage Full Sheet (I have the hearts too, and love them!). I stamped on my designer paper (Tim Holtz Ideology) with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. Easy! 
Added a shabby seam binding bow with crocheted lace, a vintage button, and some paper roses for embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today!
