Just For Fun March Challenge

Hi and welcome to my blog! We are having another challenge at Just For Fun Stamps! You will enjoy this challenge because the theme is Movement! I love cards that move. They are always fun to make and to receive! On my card I used the Flower Balloon stamp, embossed it with black embossing powder, colored with Zig markers and fussy cut it. I used a wavy die to show the balloon moving throught the clouds. The background was made by using cloud stencils and sponging around the stencils with Distress Oxide inks. The saying is from the Sentiments 3 unmounted sheet.

I have gone hot air ballooning and it was a wonderful ride -- gliding through the air just over the tree tops. If you ever have a chance, I hope that you will go. It was one of my greatest experiences!

Here is the card when the balloon has been moved to the other side of the card. I made the balloon move by adding a penny to the back of the balloon, then adding a small pop dot, then adding another penny to the pop dot to hold the pennies together.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope that you will join in this fun challenge. I would love to see your movement cards!

Have a wonderful day!

I love your card, your hot air balloon is so cute and I bet it is fun to move it around. I have never been on a hot air balloon ride, but I would like to!

I just love this, such a lovely background sky you have made that is gorgeous and to have the balloon move is so great. Now I don't think I would actually go in a real one with my fear of heights but like to watch them while I am on the ground :)
