Today's set has some wonderful sentiments and I paired one with the hot air balloon (love that there is a balloon die!) which I coloured bright yellow - I have spring on my mind {grin}!  I also used the small Lacy Trim die - love the two size options!  I added a few clouds for a "floating in the sky feeling" and finished things off with some twine.

This is darling! I love the balance and focus of square cards, and the way you treated the circular panel is so clever! Your card will surely lift someone's spirits!

Rachel Jolley said...

Striking card with that oh so sweet ballon die cut! I do like how you have cut the end off the circle and popped a pretty piece down the side, very imaginative. Tfs

I really like your card Marisa. It makes me open my mind to possibilities with my many different shaped dies. Adding the clouds to the edge is something I wouldn't have thought of, and I need to :)
