Up, Up & Away

I have just taken possession of a fabulous new stamp set - Up, Up & Away. It's a gorgeous set with balloons galore, take a look at the card I have made with it

I've chosen mainly primary colours for this - Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Real Red and I have also followed this week's sketch over on Retro Sketches

The images of the houses are from the retired set Good Neighbors which I have stolen from my friend Beverley - she doesn't know it yet but she's not getting it back mwahahahaha.
There are two more challenges I'd like to enter this card into, firstly Crafty Cardmakers - this week my great friend Mynnette is the hostess and as it was her birthday this month she chose the subject 'Birthday Balloon Bonanza'
And then lastly I hope I can squeeze it into the Polka Doodles challenge where they are celebrating their 3rd birthday and want to see '3' of something - I have used 3 balloons and 3 flowers on my card.
Thanks for looking - Jacqueline xx
