Hot Air Ballons

This week over at Christian Card Makers Group my theme is Hot Air Balloons!  I have a few Tim Holtz stamps with Hot Air Balloons and other vintagy things and I thought it would be a fun theme to help add to the masculine stash.

It turned out to be more of a challenge that I thought!  One thing about vintage images they aren't always cheery, the colors can be a little strange and then what do you add for a verse or sentiment?
So this week I will be making a few hopefully cherry masculine cards with these images and as always I have freebies for down loading

Today, a generic Hello card:

The image:

as possible background if you felt like fussy cutting

My card: 

This is an A6 size 

I fussy cut the balloons used crystal lacquer and then gave them a little dimension with foam tape
A little mirror card stock and more foam tape.

I hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by,
