What's Up?

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Peggy is the challenge hostess for the month and she continues to issue the challenges.

Being the third Saturday of the month it is time for our Sketch Challenge. I hope you have fun playing with this layout.

For my card today I decided to pull out the Hot Air Balloon die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

On the lower right hand side of the card I added one of the sentiments from the What's Up? Clear Stamp set. This sentiment seems to work with so many different stamps & dies that I own :)

For the inside of the card I used the Pop Up die that is included in the set to create a pop up card. I have positioned the die so that the extra pop up piece is at the bottom of the card rather than the top and placed my hot air balloon on the main pop up panel and then the cloud on the small pop up piece that comes out from there. 

I used another sentiment from the What's Up? Clear Stamp set and this is layered using an oval from the Oval Landscape Accordion Card set.

Here is another look at the inside of my card, this time at an angle so you can see the pop up pieces of the card. I also added Orange/Silver Glitter Dot Peel Off Stickers to the Hot Air Balloon and the stripes of card at both edges.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
