Hot Air Balloon -punch art

I made this card for two challenges...

The Splitcoast Color Challenge was to use the retiring In Colors (Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizazz, Concord Crush).  I chose to use all 5.  I cut diagonal strips for the background piece and embossed with dots.

The balloon is made using a circle which I embossed with scallops and the basket is the cupcake punch.  I used twine and popped up the circle with dimensionals.

I added some clouds in the background and a bit of dotted scallop border under the sentiment.  The sentiment is from "Sweet Cake".

The layout is from Stamping 411.
