Now for the next challenge at Clearly iStamp in celebration of National Scrapbook Day:
CHALLENGE #2: Balloons! 
Must have one or many on your project.

Hot Air Balloon

When I was deciding on what challenges to do I thought of all the wonderful Balloon stamps that Clearly Digi Stamps has in their store. This is Hot Air Balloon is one of my favorites and I guess I like it for Masculine cards as this is the 2nd or maybe 3rd one I made with it! It is so fun and easy to paper piece too.  I used a March 2012 Card map from as inspiration.
