Up, Up and Away

It is March 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For the March Challenge, Darlene and Laura Jean decided on the theme--Would You Like to Ride on my Beautiful Balloon!  Darlene is one of the Darlings and I am a part of the Diva team, which Laura Jean is on! 

Laura Jean sent us a couple of My Favorite Things hot air balloon images and three great sentiments.  Some of the balloons were already die cut and some were on stamped on a quarter sheet.  She also include some wonderful patterned papers and matching embellishments. Laura Jean said this is one of her favorite MFT sets and I can see why!  I used two of the die cut balloons and made a z-fold card.

Here is the inside of my card:


I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. 

There are a few members who do not have blogs:  Suzy and Terry S who both are on the Diva team, and Terry A, Paola and Debby who are Dazzlers.  You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!
