My Favorite Things!

Good morning all!  Jen McDermott here; sharing the card I made for the current challenge, My Favorite Things!  Since I started out a scrapbooker, I *love* patterned paper and have a substantial stash I'm working through.  I also cannot craft without my Silhouette Cameo--when you put those two things together, I am blissfully happy!

I started out with patterned paper from three Lawn Fawn collections: Dewey Decimal, Bright Side, and Daphne's Closet.  I used an awesome Lori Whitlock cut file to make the 3D balloon and scalloped background.  That balloon really jumps out at you!

 Then, I added a little banner with a sentiment from Blue Skies, and a little bit of Lawn Trimmings to finish it off!

I can't wait to see what YOU create for the current challenge!


  1. It really is a pretty, fun and awesome card!! And talk about a wow factor!! What a wonderful idea to make the hot air balloon 3-d!

  2. A gorgeous design with a striking colour combo. Love the fun hot air balloon.
