Up Up and Away Birthday Wishes


Happy Saturday Everyone.  

Today's challenge at Less is More is Paper Piecing.  I always admire when I see this done on others cards but rarely do it on my own. 

I've chosen to combine Delightful Dozen and Up Up and Away.  I've paper pieced the balloon with Pacific Point patterned paper from the stacks set.  The balloon is popped up on a Dimensional.  The basket was stamped in Sahara Sand and cut out then attached.  I stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand directly on the panel then stamped again on another piece of Whisper White in Pacific Point and cut out.  This was then attached back into the sentiment.  The birds and clouds are stamped in Pacific Point.  For the clouds I paper pieced some Bashful Blue.  The panel was then attached to a Whisper White card base.

Have a happy afternoon.  Thanks for coming in by to visit me.  x
