DC – Up, Up and Away with the Queen of Hearts!!!

Good morning everybody! 

It’s Choosday which means it’s time for a new ‘Anything Goes’ challenge over at POLKADOODLES DIGI CHOOSDAY and as always we have a wonderful prize on offer for our lucky winner so check out the BLOG for details.   

Don’t forget it is also DISCOUNT DAY so you need to grab the code on THE BLOG to get a MASSIVE reduction in the POLKADOODLES SHOP! It’s for a limited time only so be quick!

The team had a hearts theme this week and we had to include hearts shaped balloons somewhere on our project too! I think I got that covered!

This glorious image is the RED QUEEN from the WINNIE IN WONDERLAND collection and I thought she might appreciate a trip in a hot air balloon! I know I would.

The balloon itself is made using the wonderful new HEART FLOURISH die that I cut once in red card and again in kraft so that I could inlay the design to create a closed pattern.  I am still recovering from that.

The basket of the balloon is the largest of the PERFECT PARCELS dies with the ribbon part cut away and the waste sections from this used to make the sand bags/ballast.
