Perfect Sentiments #15 - Hot Air Balloons

Hi there,
Today's post is for the Perfect Sentiments Challenge this week to do a Birthday card plus the Emboss Resist Technique as the twist.  I used White Embossing Powder for the main balloon shapes and then used Clear embossing Powder and Early Espresso for the baskets on the balloons and the thin dotted lines on the balloons that give them a Vintage touch.  I used River Rock and a sponge to create the clouds in the background with a Scallop circle Punch to make the clouds.  I was going for a vintage theme and wanted to use the Well Torn DSP.  I coloured the balloons with cotton buds.  The birthday flag was also done with emboss resist on glossy white card.
This card was awarded a Perfect 3 at Perfect Sentiments this week.
