Look Up! - Day 1

Okay it's officiall I'm going to have to start distorting my images more. You all are too good. This set is called Look Up! and many of you were right by guessing that they were hot air balloons.

I'm just going to start off with one of my favorite cards I've made with the set so far. I basically used every neutral piece of paper and fabric I had in my craft room!

Here's how I made the card. The banner stamp, I used with Stazon and stamp on some neutral fabric I had. I cut it out and sewed it on the top edge. The hot air balloons are from the set, but the larger balloon is actually the back of the image. The image side has vertical stripes (you'll see that side later this week).
So what do you think? I have to say this set is really fun... and there are a ton of interactive pieces. I hope you'll check back again tomorrow to see more.

Oh and don't forget I'll be drawing one winner to receive the set from all the commenters through March 5th at 10 pm central.

Oh and do you want to hear some other exciting news. We are moving to our official site - more on that later this week!

And on the fabric note... that's the challenge over at EBTKS! Come play along!
