MCT Designer Challenge

We've got a new Designer Challenge going on at My Creative Time!  Join in on the fun!  You can use the sketch or the inspiration photo below to get ideas for your card!  I took the summer theme of the photo, plus the color scheme to make my card today.

I sized my card base at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" to be just the right size for the middle sized Stitched Rectangular Frame Die, which I used to make a kraft base.  I then used the smallest frame die to cut a rectangle out of watercolor paper, which I colored with a Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pen and a watercolor brush.  The hot air balloon and banner were made with stamps and dies from The Sky is the Limit.  I also colored them with the Zig Pens and a watercolor brush.  I stamped the sentiment from Thanks for the Lift, and the clouds were made with the Fun Stitched Cloud Dies.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see how she and the rest of the design team were inspired by the photo and sketch!
