Balloon Thanks

My husband asked me to make him a couple of thank you cards for 2 male staff members
 he has at work moving on to other assignments. I don't make too many cards that are
masculine in nature so when I saw the photo inspiration challenge over at
Just Us Girls this week I thought I would use it for one of the cards.

I took the more literal approach to the photo using the balloon and some of the colors
in it as my inspiration. I found this free balloon scene digital stamp over at
The cloud paper was also free there.  I printed the scene several times and paper pieced
after coloring with smooch inks and spectrum noir markers.  Then just added the banners
and stamped sentiment. Thanks for taking a look!
