Friday Sketchers Challenge 47

Friday Sketchers challenge this week was to follow the sketch and this is my card using the sketch provided.
I wanted to do something a little different and chose to use an air balloon stamp.
The background is a mottled blue paper with a stripped blue ribbon. The oval mount is made from a script paper with wording that reflects the air ballon theme, calm, peace, tranquility, serenity. The scroll effect is a stamp that helps frame the oval shape. Three frosted beads help to knit the colours together. The air ballons are printed on some blue card, I used a silver ink pad on the edges and placed two blue stars to reflect the star in the image. This was a nice sketch to use and the simplicty makes it a challenge to give the card depth.
