So glad there's you

I can't believe that it is already my third challenge with the Repeat Impressions Rock Star Team over on The House That Stamps Built challenge blog.  This week we have two fabulous photos for you to by inspired by.  Here they are:
You can be inspired by either one and let me tell you that there is so much to be inspired by in them.  Can you guess what inspired my card?  : )
I started out by stamping my hot air balloon, then stamped it on a post it note and cute it out to use as a mask.  After I put my mask on the image, I stamped the clouds.  I also made masks for them and then sponged on blue ink to create the sky.  Removed the masks and colored up the balloon.  The doily wasn't actually large enough to put behind the tags, so I cut it in half and attached it to the back of the tags with about 1/2 inch gab.  The crocheted lace hides the gap on the top and you'd never know.  It's just a great way to stretch (ha, that was a good one) the uses of your dies.
Now, it's time to hop on over to the challenge blog and see how the rest of the DT interpreted this challenge.
