Vellum Clouds for A Blog Named Hero Challenge #30

I made this card for the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero - Challenge #30 Victorious Vellum. The concept came to me pretty quickly but executing what I was envisioning involved a little trial and error. I knew I wanted to emboss a piece of vellum for my sky but when placed against my card base you couldn't really perceive it was vellum. Ultimately I sandwiched the vellum piece between two very narrow white frames creating a sheer panel as the front of my card.

I used the Hero Arts OWH fundraiser set called 'Happy Birthday' which includes this wonderful hot air balloon as well at the sentiment. When I first got this set I fell so in love with it that I took the time to create some cut files for my Cameo Silhouette so fussy cutting is no longer required and I can get right to the fun of coloring it. 

Happy Crafting!

Saw your card at Hero Arts challenge. I like the way you have colored it & used the embossed vellum piece. I like Hot Air Balloons. There's an annual Hot Air Balloon Festival here in Sept that I enjoy going to seeing & photographing the balloons launch. Have been to a 'Glow' also where at night they light up the Balloons with the flames but do not lift off.
