BBTB2/Fly Away

Welcome Monday and weeklong visitors.  Our challenge this week at BBTB2 is by our talented design team sister, Jeri. She asked us to design with a theme of Fly Away...we were to use a hot air balloon, however if there were no hot air balloons available to us, we could use an airplane. 

I used the B is for Boy cartridge for this card which features travel by car, train or  airplane.... I looked and looked and there were no hot air balloons on any of the 66 carts I own. .. I've written down a promise to me to NOT buy anymore cartridges for a while.  I have some I haven't even used and that's silly.
This shows the pop-dotted travel cuts.

The lettering is from Blackletter cartridge which is such a defined calligraphy style.  The papers are from a darling little paper pad I received from my friends while in Tucson for the annual Card Camp.
I added an embossed EK Success round scallop punch to the layer below the die cut.

I sort of slammed this card together.  My new Craft Room is wonderful but as you can imagine once you move your crafty supplies from a long-standing room to a new room, one can spend a lot of time trying to find where you put what you are looking for.  It was a fun adventure but nonetheless, slowed me down.  Once I get into the swing of things, all will be well. 

Hope you join in our challenge.  You will find a lot of inspiration on our BBTB2 Fly Away posts because our DT sisters are so so talented.  Read our simple rules and join in.... Remember....we are a Cricut based challenge team so please be sure to use a Cricut cut and mention BBTB2 and the cartridge in your link up.....thanks for looking.
