Double Challenge Card for the 4th. of July





This card was made with 2 different challenges in mind.  I was first drawn to the balloons because of  Crafty Catz http://craftycatzweeklychallenge.blogspot.com/. Their challenge# 234  is "Inspired by a Song". I thought of "Up, Up and Away" by the 5th Dimension. When I started to color the larger balloon, the decorations reminded me of patriotic buntings, so I thought that I would color it red, white and blue and enter it into the challenge for Simply Create Too http://simplycreatetoo.blogspot.com/. Their challenge # 63 is "Celebrate Your Country". I included a music sheet for the song which I printed out from the internet.  Hope you like this.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: CTMH My Sunshine for the smaller balloon and a free digi stamp from pinterest
Paper: Navy Blue and Red card stock and the cloud paper is from CTMH Splendor paper pack
Inks: Ranger Stormy Skies distress marker, CTMH, red My legacy marker, CTMH Topiary Stamp pad 
and LePlume yellow marker for the smaller balloon.
Embellies: Red, white and blue ribbon  and bow
Tools: CTMH corner rounder
