FYI #6 - Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!

Wow, I know!  Another post this week.  I got more time to create a card for this weeks FYI challenge, and couldn't miss the chance to play along.  I've been so busy that I hadn't created anything for the first five challenges.  Gosh, five challenges down already.  Time flies.

Here is this weeks inspiration photo. 

I chose this photo in honor of my mom's birthday, which is today.  Happy Birthday Mom!!  She LOVES hot air balloons.  I love the bold colors against the cool blue sky.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I know I've made like two birthday cards for my mom already, but I just had to create one using the above photo as the one she's actually going to get.  Here is what I came up with.

I have had this felt hot air balloon embellishment in my stash for months, just for this occasion.  I hope she likes it.  I'm slightly jealous though.  She's on vacation with family in North Carolina this week.  I wish I were with her on vacation.  lol

I hope you'll head over to see what the Lovely Lotuses have created for you today.  We have three new designers joining us, and we've got a cool little something to give away in honor of them.

Have a great day!
