Nineteen Years
Nineteen years ago, during our very short honeymoon in Middletown, Ohio, my DH and I really enjoyed the hot air balloon festival that took place there that weekend. We always think of hot air balloons on our wedding anniversary, which is why I used an image from the Up, Up, and Away stamp set on my card for him.

I used one of the Week 3 sketches from Summer Card Camp 2, and the first additional color combo that we were given on day 5. I dry-embossed the vellum cloud die-cut behind the balloon with the Cloudy Day embossing folder and added piercing along the edges of the card. The little red heart was covered with Crystal Effects and glued on top of a bow created with scrapper’s floss.

Thanks for stopping by!
