Up Up and Away

Today's card has been created with some lovely cloud papers from Nitwits that seemed just perfect for this image of cute little Barry the bear being carried away by his balloons.  It reminded me of the film 'Up' and is to support the 'Up Up and Away' challenge which starts today at Crafty Little Fairies.

I've tried to get a teeny outline hint of the other two balloons behind the front red one, but it did end up only being the smallest of hints, because you can only just make them out through the red one if you look really closely.

I've been playing with my new bow-maker (as you might be able to tell!)   I think I've made nothing but double bows since I got it!  Other than a few (ok, quite a few) pearls, I've laid off the embellishments, which is unusual for me, but I didn't want to cover up the clouds.

I love it as it is Annette... no further embellies needed.. (you know how minimalist I am in my cards at the mo) and that cloud paper is so perfect for the image.. Of course, you HAVE to play with the bow-maker.. how could you not?? hehe

Totally gorgeous card Annette.
I think your pearls and ribbon are the perfect needs nothing more, the image shines and those papers are far too pretty to cover up.

Big hugs
