Sketch Saturday #216

It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from

Sponsored by the wonderful
who are offering our lucky winner a very generous $25 gift voucher.

There I was banging my head against the wall wondering what to make for our fab sketch today and instead of seeing stars... I saw hot air balloons. "Out of the Blue" by Lime twist had just the right papers.  I combined them with a Hero Arts stamp (the main image which includes its own sentiment) and a cute little PTI stamp and die set called, I think, "Up, up and away" which I just HAD to have when I saw them even though I don't generally make cards like this.  I used Copics for my colouring medium throughout.

I so enjoyed using today's sketch and we would love to see you use it too.  There are lots of wonderful DT cards over on our challenge blog to inspire you and if you play along, you could be the lucky winner of the amazing prize.
