Inkspirations and Embellish challenge fun!

Hello there bloggie friends!  I'm back with another anniversary card, which was inspired by the Embellish color challenge and the Inkspirations sketch challenge:


For me, I think challenges give me the kick start I need sometimes to get the creative juices flowing.  I have been itching to use the Up, Up & Away stamp set, so I incorporated it with my little hillside scene, which I created using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die.  I also really love the new Snowburst Embossing folder, which will be available in soon in the Holiday Mini {Sep 1!}.  Here's a look at the full card for you:
I really do like the nice muted color scheme. It's definitely a new one for me, but a good one to keep in mind!  Hope you like it.  Here's the recipe for you:
{Hot Air Balloon Anniversary}
*Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Teeny Tiny Wishes
*Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Pocketful of Posies DSP
*Inks: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi
*Accessories: Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon, Modern Label Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch, Scallop Square Duo Bigz die, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, Snowburst Embossing Folder, Stripes Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls
Thanks for coming by!  Toodles for now :)
