Tutorial and MWT All-in-one!

This week's Tuesday Tutorial was making a hot air balloon and the Midweek Throwdown was to make a love or anniversary themed card.  Here's a two-fer: 
Since I didn't have any stamps of hot air balloons nor any patterned paper featuring them, I made my own from a circle and trapezoid of paper along with some ribbons.  Anyone can play along with this tutorial with some creativity!

  3. What an outstanding job you did and quite original. My mind would have never thought to do what you did. Your clouds, grass and sentiment are all beautifully done.

  5. Very nice- I love how you made it work. I do not have many "tools" or machines and have to find ways to make things by hand. Love how nice this looks.

  6. Too clever! It all works together so well, and how cool is it you could use it for two challenges? I also really love that sentiment!

  8. Very creative! I wouldn't have thought of making a hot air balloon like this in a million years. Thanks for the tip! Love the papers you chose, especially for the basket... it really looks wicker. TFS!

  10. Love it! I love your tree border. I just got an edge punch that does trees. I'll have to remember this trick next time I make a balloon card! Way to go! Way to combine your challenges, too! :)
