Let Your Dreams Take Flight!

I made this card with the Inkspirational sketch in mind. I've used blue, grey and silver colors. I used my Darice chevron embossing folder for the background. I cut stars out of silver glitter paper and the rounded tag using Sizzix dies. The sentiment doesn't show so well in this photo, but it says "let your dreams take flight - it's been heat embossed in white. For the sentiment and the hot air balloon I've used stamps from Our Craft Lounge. I've colored the image with ProMarkers. The DP with spots and the card candy came free with a magazine.

Wonderful! This is the sort of card I am making for my daughter who is following her dream...cutting back her work hours to spend half the year in Monaco. She is busy taking French lessons and joining volunteer groups to make new friends.
Of course there is a special man too but she has her own apartment and is self suffient!

Great card. I really love the chevron embossing and the sentiment isso perfect with that hot air ballon!
