Hot Air Balloons

Have you seen the hot air balloons? They are everywhere right now. I found this great balloon from Deadbeat Designs at Felicia's Scrapbooks. I liked it because the balloon itself is very plain and allows you to decorate it how you wish. I am getting into a Christmas state of mind so my balloons took a merry format this time.

I filled my balloons in with a combo of colored pencils and paper piecing.  I just pulled some small scraps from my (overflowing) scrap bin and added them to the balloons.  I used kraft paper again and embossed silver snowflakes and a Merry Christmas Greeting.

I finished the card with silver stickles and some sponged white ink for a hint of clouds.  I like the idea of Santa delivering presents in a balloon instead of a sleigh.
