TRR Challenge #34 - Retro

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel!  It's Zuzana's turn to host this week and she has chosen this fabulous inspiration photo .....


and ask that you create a card / project using the COLOURS in the photo plus a FLOWER and RIBBON / TWINE!

Here is my card....


I found this gorgeous MME Out Of The Blue paper which had just the right colours for this challenge. 


I paper pieced a couple of the clouds and the green hot air balloon and popped a mini foam dot behind them to give them a 3D effect.  Not the best hand cutting but not too bad!


I didn't feel like I should add to much to this card so kept it simple with a little ivory button twine, MME sentiment sticker and a small dahlia resin flower.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team's cards.

Challenges:

Supplies used:
Cardstock - MME Out Of The Blue from The Ribbon Reel
Ribbon - Ivory Button Twine from The Ribbon Reel
Flower - Orange Dahlia Resin Flower from The Ribbon Reel
Other - MME Sentiment Sticker from stash

TFL!

What a wonderful way to capture all the colors, and that paper is gorgeous. I am partial to balloons having been on a hot air balloon team in my younger days in New Mexico. Great card, and we are so happy you joined us at Dude Time Doodles.
