High-Flying at Eyelet Outlet

For my Eyelet Outlet post today, I enlisted the help of these adorable Woodland Animal Brads.  Their job was to pick up the balloons for the birthday celebration; but on their way back, something happened…

…it seems those helium filled balloons were a bit too powerful for these cuties and up, up and away.  Only a few left safely on the ground.  But I think they might be having fun!

The card base was made using a cut file purchased in the Silhouette store.  As always, I modified it as I can never leave well enough alone.  My first change was to create an internal offset for the sky.  Bashful Blue Small Polka Dot digital paper was used to fill this panel and then embossed using the Cloudy Day embossing folder.  The hills were cut using another Silhouette store file and filled with Garden Green Grid digital paper.  The hills were also embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder.

I cut the balloon outlines from Whisper White card stock and then the balloons from shimmer paper in various colors.  The stars of the show are holding on (for dear life) to the balloons and, in some cases, each other.

On the ground, three more animals witnessing these high-flying escapades.  The little skunk is busy holding the happy birthday greeting that was intended to be attached to the balloons.

Inside, I converted the sky panel and the balloon outlines to print only.  I added the balloons using the same paper and typed the sentiment.

When they eventually land, these Woodland Animals will be able to help the recipient celebrate their birthday!

I also submitted this card to the Challenge Up Your Life: Challenge #67 Brads
