Blue Skies

Happy Friday!
My friend and I stopped into a scrapbook shop I've never been in before and I found this little treasure - a stamp from 'Your Next Stamp'. Her name is Fhiona. So cute! Don't you think?

I've altered the stamped image slightly by adding two more balloons (the stamp has one). Since I wanted her to look like she was floating up in the clouds, I thought it was more practical for her to have a few balloons lifting her up. I also paper pieced the balloons. The sky was made by punching decorative paper with my SU scalloped oval punch. I got the idea from a card posted on Splitcoast Stampers here.

I made this card for this weeks challenge on the 'Your Next Stamp' challenge blog. To participate, check out the blog here.
