Well, I made a card and it looked perfect for our July 4th challenge of Summer Doodles so I put it aside and got cracking on the hot air balloon. This card measures 4 1/4 by 6 inches just right for the envelopes that are 4 3/4 by 6 1/2 inches.
This card sure could pass for a fun summer card, too, and the colors sure do apply to summer! I must be in a super summer creative mood!!! Planning on sending this card to an old friend whose bday is July 3rd.
The hot air balloon is available in the Daisy's Digi Store and you can find it in the Summer Fun set.
There are only two days remaining to enter the mini challenge at the Daisy Doodles Creative challenge blog.
Then you have until July 3rd to enter the DDCCblog challenge #36 Stars and Stripes celebrating Independence Day.
Thanks for coming by!
