Up, up and away...

Greetings to you all, I hope you are well.
Apologies for the quiet recently but I have been unwell, I am currently typing this very slowly as I can only see out of one eye due to having an infection that has sealed my left eye shut with all the swelling :/
Today's post took me almost a whole day to put together-everything takes longer when you are not your best, doesn't it?
Well, I have been wanting this stencil for ages-ever since I saw it at a show and I was so excited when I finally bought it!

Hot Air Balloon stencil- Imagination Crafts
Sparkle in Copper, Sand and Brown- Glitz Craft
Up, up and away stamp- Dreamees
Gems, charm and ribbon from my stash.

This design is a fun one to put together-I was a bit hesitant with the guillotine at first as it's such a lovely image!
I figure this card could be used to send to someone who just graduated, or got a promotion,  someone moving house, or leaving work/retiring. There are many uses for this and I like versatility ;)

I hope you like it as much as I liked making it!  Let me know what you think, and until next time-Happy Crafting xx
