Life's A Journey

I was asked to make a fun, kid-friendly card for an elementary school teacher who was leaving her grade 2 class to move on to another job.  I thought of using either a sailboat theme, or road/path theme to compliment the sentiment, "life's a journey", but then I came across this hot air balloon stamp, and thought it would work best.

All the cute buildings and the sun were cut out from patterned cardstock - some buildings were cut out twice and pop-dotted, and, although difficult to tell in the photos, liquid glass was added to certain details to add brightness and dimension. The balloon was stamped, cut out, and embellished also.

Thanks for looking!
