Up, up and away.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Hugs for those who need one ;D
I have been after an hot air balloon die for ages and finally managed to get my hands on one yesterday thanks to Sue at my local craft shop.
I wanted one for male cards and so i just had to have a quick play.
I am entering it into the following challenge:

Products used are:
Black card
First Editon papers - Man made
Woodware sentiment stamp

A close up of the balloons, i love em.You would not get me inside one though.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, it means a lot :D
