Balloon Day Card

Hi Crafters!
 Its design team day again over at My Cricut Craft Room. Our theme today was balloons around the world. 
I used everyday pop up cards cricut cartridge and My Minds Eye  Away we go 6x6 paper pad

Here's my card and then I will tell ya what I did. 

On pg 39 of Everyday pop up cards. I cut the balloon at 3 1/2. 

after assembling the balloon I added 2 pearl as the banner holder. 
I used my versamark pen to add some lines to the basket. I used weathered wood to ink around the balloon. 

For the rolling hills I cut some green paper and inked with Tim Holtz ink in peeled paint, forest moss and shabby shutters. I also used my Versamarker to add some sprigs to the grass to add some texture.
I then popped up the top hill using foam tape. 

Next I stamped the "thinking of you" in Memento London fog ink. The stamp set is from close to my heart.

I popped up the balloon with some more foam tape.

Here is my finished card. I just love it.

So what do you think?  I hope that you enjoyed my post as much as I loved making this card.
