Up, Up, and Away

I've seen a lot of hot air balloons up in the sky lately and that made me want to make a card with some as well :)

I used the colors from this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge and the 'strips' from CAS-ual Fridays' challenge .  The yellow is kind of a mustardy yellow on its own, but paired with the blues, it takes on more of a green hue.  :(

I kept the inside fairly simple, mimicking the front but not embossing the light blue or coloring the center panel (giving room for a message!).

Thanks for stopping by!
