Up, Up & Away
The Free 4 All Challenge at SCS was to create a card for a boy...big or small. I needed a birthday card for a younger brother, so went with a summer scene of hot air balloons. Annually, near my hometown in Ohio, there is a gathering of dozens and dozens of hot air balloons that create a great show in the sky with their myriad of colors! I paper-pieced these images and started gluing the DP down before I remembered I had wanted to zig-zag stitch the hills! :-( Oh, well, there's always next time.
