FRIENDS WITH FLAIR ARE GROWING IN UNITY

I had my Copic Class at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks last night and was inspired to use my Copics on this card.  I also purchased two cool Prima stencil sets, one of which had this hot air balloon stencil.  So, I thought how much fun it would be to use it to make a hot air balloon card using this wonderful Unity hot air balloon image.  I played around a little and came up with this card, using the Hip Hop Sketch #25. The cardstock is from Paper Studio and Bazzill; the flowers are from Prima; the brads and buttons are from Basic Grey; the ink is from Ranger and Momento.  The striped paper is a scrap from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment each day this week for a chance to win some Unity goodness for Growing in Unity.
