Card using Balloon Ride paper

When this order came in, had to immediately play with this paper package and see what could be done with it.    This is such a beautiful package, with the best colours have seen in one for a long time from anywhere.   
So. took a piece of the designer paper and cut this one balloon out of it, then went to work. 

Of course used Gina K ivory base weight stock, then a piece of Close To My Heart paper from the same package.  This paper is kind of a marbelized effect look and is absolutely gorgeous, but hiding on this card.  Just wanted the colour here.

Thought something besides just plain baking was called for, so went through the samples of the embossing folders deciding on this beautiful cloud one from Darice.  Embossed the Sky stock from Close To My Heart, then went to the ribbon stash.   This is a Cream grosgrain that was Elan, and played until getting the look wanted.  Added another layer of the beautiful rusty colour paper, then Sky stock again to accent the colours in the balloon piece.   

That's it pretty simple, but loved the finished look.    Do you believe it.  No die cuts,  No flowers, No colouring.    Whew !!
