Up, up and away ...

... on a hot summer's day.

I made this card a few weeks ago using digital papers and items from Funky Hand's 'Colour me happy' and 'Happy happy birthday', tearing round perspex oval templates for the image and matting. I added two different strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape either side of a piece of ribbon. With the addition of the black gems and the sentiment the card was finished.
