Enjoy the ride

Don't forget about my two BIG Blog Candies found here.

Well, I had another anniversary card to make. I really didn't realize how many I needed in one year. After some reflection I think it is great! What a testiment to marriage. Okay this was for a few different challenges. I was a bit worried about this Color Throwdown challenge becuase the colors were not really me, but I really do like the card. I also made this for the PPA clean and simple challenge.
Here is my card
A close up of the dimension.
Okay I got this fabulous idea from Lauren Meader. She is a geneous and I love this. It was easy and a lot of fun. I really don't think it would mail well, but it is stining cute for those you can give in person.
I did use polka dot basics 2 for the dotted circles. I really liked the little something it added to the balloons. I have also decided I am going out and getting a simple ruler. Isn't that funny that a simple ruler would be my most needed tool LOL!
It's a good life!

You must have made this card for me since it has two of my favorite things on it, polka dots and Hot Air Balloons! How did you know?? LOL! I have this set and I love to see it used in a different way.
