Hot air balloon

It is Friday! This has been a long week, I think adjusting to the time change here, we had to Spring Forward!  I have created this card for 4 challenges.
The Play Date Cafe #73-mustard, burgundy and lilac                                                                                         
The Papercrafting Journey #6  -Up in the Air
ABC Challenge- Q is for Quote
Case Study #31

Here is the card for inspiration at the Case Study by Julee Tillman.
Here is my card:

The patterned paper is Recollections. The balloon stamp is Verve and the saying is Stampscapes, Inc. I cut the bottom of the card with decorative sissors and I cut the balloon with my Spellbinders label with the Cuttlebug. I inked the sides with red ink. I added a sheer ribbon on a ribbon ring and added 2 star pins. I am trying to like this card but I am getting used to making cute cards with a lot of bling! One of those might be coming up! Thanks for stopping by!
