Girl in a Balloon

Hi!  I have made a card with Hambo Stamps' Balloon Girl image that I got for FREE!  I just had to play in the Hambo Hoedown challenge last week to receive the image.  Love that!

This week's challenge was to use the image and use some bright paper-piecing.
I have to admit, I forgot about the 'bright' part of the challenge.  Oh well...
I wanted my girl to have a distinctive balloon so I used 3 different BasicGrey papers to paper-peice. The more I paper-peice, the less I have to color. *grin*

I also wanted lots of fluffy white clouds which I created with chalks and a cloud mask.
And, what's a sky without birds?!! I took a chance & drew a few birds in there.

This card will be entered into these challenges:
Hambo Hoedown - use Balloon image & bright paper-peicing
Simon Stamp & Show - anything goes
Crafty Creations -  anything goes
