Would you like to fly....

in my beautiful balloon?.......

Hello everyone it's Kathy here today with my project for Allison's high flying challenge!

The only rule we have here at Get Funky is that you must use at least ONE Funky Hand product on your creation - there's plenty to choose from: papers, stamps, digital images and template designs to name a few
 You can even join in if you don't own any Funky Hand stash (yet) by using the Funky Freebie that Anice makes especially to fot in with each month's challenge
Find this month's Funky Freebie  paper by clicking the link or going to the website www.funkyhand.com and looking in the downloads section.
Here's my card
All other papers from Happy, Happy Birthday CD
Black card

Using the workspace on the Papercraft Factory Happy, Happy Birthday CD I resized the papers for the balloons to fit 4 designs on one sheet of A4.
I printed the Happy Birthday greetings design on part of a second sheet, then used the remainder to print the Funky Freebie clouds design.
The balloon shapes were cut using my Craft Robo
The baskets are cut with 2 sizes of square punches, then I trimmed a tiny piece of each corner to get a nicer shape
The balloon on the right is a pop out - to make the mechanism, you need to use a strip of card and fold it rather like the "sleeve" of a matchbox. Glue one side to the back of the balloon and the facing side to the card.
 Once dry you can squash it flat for posting.
And now, a bonus card (hehe)
I still had some paper left over after I'd finished this card, so I made another one, this time using the Coloured Balloons digital image
also from the Happy, Happy Birthday CD
I've used the new March sketch from The Sketch File Blog for the layout

All other papers and Image from Happy, Happy Birthday CD
Sentiment was added below the image using the Workspace then
printed out in one go

 I hope you like the projects you've seen so far for Allison's challenge and you'll be joining in with us this month, there's still plenty of time to make and submit your own creation.
Don't forget you MUST include at least ONE Funky Hand Product to qualify for our prize

Happy Crafting
Kathy xx
