June Papertrey Blog Hop!

Good Afternoon, Friends! Today I'm participating in the June Papertrey Blog Hop! Be sure to stop by and see everyone's wonderful creations!! Our challenge this week was to use the photo below as inspiration. I decided to go CAS with my card today. As you can see, I went pretty basic by using the background colors in the same way as the photo. I decided that I'd use the hot air balloon image as the focal point for the card. I chose to place it where the adorable dresses were hanging in the photo. I did add a bit of extra color by using twine to tie the buttons. Oh! and isn't that little yellow button the sweetest?!? I've saved it for a while and decided that today was the day to use it:)

I can't wait to see everyone's creations!

Happy Saturday!!
