I participated in the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary today.  I wanted to do something festive with this sketch instead of just doing flowers. I settled on hot air balloons from the You're Amazing stamp set.

Stamp sets - You're Amazing, Wishes Your Way (retired)
Cardstock - Gumball Green, Whisper White
Ink - Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Basic Black
Accessories - Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Gumball Green Stitched Satin ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals

After stamping the hot air balloons on the Whisper White cardstock that was cut into pieces, I stamped two more balloons, cut them out with my paper snips, and attached them using dimensionals. It really gives the card depth but it's hard to see in the photo.
