Let Your Dreams Take Flight...

Good morning!

Welcome to the Repeat Impressions What If Wednesday Sketch Challenge #A812!   Wendy has once again provided us with a fun sketch to work with.  I couldn't resist using the hot air balloons with this one!

Here is Wendy's sketch:


And here is my card!
Repeat Impressions #9116-N Air Balloon Cluster,  #9117-F Dreams Take Flight, Amuse Cardstock, Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White Cardstock, pearls, green satin ribbon, and white trim from my stash, Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink, Perfect Layers Tools, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

I chose to use one of the sentiments and images from the 9100 series that was released recently. The balloons were paperpieced with the cute dotty cardstock from Amuse. Perfect Layers Tools were used for my nice straight mats.

We would love to see your take on this sketch!  Link up your card at The House that Stamps Built - you could be the next lucky winner!  Repeat Impressions stamps don't have to be used, but if you have them, we'd love to see them!

Check out my fellow Rockstars!  I'm sure they have some fabulous creations to share!

Thanks for stopping by,

Beautiful card! I love the polka dotted papers. In a few weeks the sky in our town will be filled with all sorts of colourful balloons. Some fly right over our house and land in the field next to us. :)

Patti, this is gorgeous!!! And I really love how you incorporated the black and white polka-dot background -- that really sets off the other pretty colors.

What a great job you did off that sketch!!!

I don't know what happened to my previous comment -- it just disappear... lol! So, here I go again...

Patti, I just love this gorgeous card!!! I love the pretty colors, and how you used the black and white polka-dot background which just sets off the colors.

You really did a great job from the sketch!!! I'm not good at getting ideas from sketches and I can honestly say I never would have seen this!
