Hot Air Balloons

 
Happy Tuesday!

Today's card is a fun-whimsical creation inspired by the sketch at
 The Sweet Stop (Challenge #205).

When I saw this week's challenge, my first thought was to create something just exactly like the sketch (using circles).

Yet, when I got to playing around, I decided on cutting this DP in the shape of hot-air-balloons, and went from there.  Then, I had a thought of using some square brads as the baskets...and viola!  My hot-air-balloons creation was born.  This was a fun one for sure!
Thanks for stopping by today!
