JUST US GIRLS #310 - Trend week!

Good morning crafty peeps! We've got a new challenge starting at JUST US GIRLS! It's Trend Week and Cheryl is your hostess this time around. She's picked BALLOONS as your inspiration! Here is the card I made:

I paper pieced the hot air balloon, and set it up on a wonky panel that's adhered with foam squares.

I left the inside blank, as I'm not sure whether to make this a graduation card, or maybe a moving-to-a-new-home type card. I guess I'll find out when I need to use it! LOL!

I hope you get the chance to play along with our balloon challenge at Just Us Girls! While there, please check out what the other ladies and our September GD, Melissa, have made to inspire you! Thanks for stopping by. Remember, that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our September challenges, you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of November!
