Drift Away

It's time for a new challenge at the Crafty Catz.

As we have no sponsor this week it's a just for fun challenge.

But the theme is add a balloon.

For my inspiration I've added a balloon of a different sort. The balloons are a stencil from Sweet Poppy called Hot Air Balloons. 
I started with the background using an oval aperture stencil and a cloud template. 

I've then inked the 2 smaller balloons inside the oval. The large balloon I have then put stencil paste through and put black glitter over the top.

The sentiment is also from the Sweet Poppy stamp set Life is a Journey.
There are then just some clear gems in 2 corners.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges

Country view Crafts - Birthday for a man
