Up, up and away

Evening Folks
Hope you are all having a good weekend.  I must say I have become totally caught up in the Olympics.  The fact that Great Britain are doing really well is also helping.  However, this does mean that my crafty time is suffering quite a bit lol.
Anyway, just thought I would pop by and post this card.  It was made for my sister to give to her hubby for his birthday.

I decided to go quite vintage on this one and the starting point was the lovely balloon topper from Kanban.  I also had some Hero Arts balloon stamps which I used to make the little tag.  The papers were from my stash box so don't know who they are by.  I believe the spotty paper is Papermania but the background paper I am not sure of.  I added some card candy and a browny gold bow and made a little sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Love to Create - Add a tag
Totally Papercrafts - Monochrome
Paperplay - Layer It Up
Delightful Challenges - Birthdays
Crafty Ribbons - Spots and dots
Catch The Bug - Anything goes
One Stop - City Break

Thanks for popping by.  I have also got a couple of new followers.  Welcome and thank you for your support.
Now back to the athletics.
Take care.
