Stampin’ Up! Happy Inkin’ Thursday “Lift Me Up” Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Here is to another Thursday Blog Hop!  Today my share for you was inspired by the sketch challenge for the week.  I finally opened up my Lift me Up Bundle!  I used the dies, stamp set and then the paper from Sale A Bration this week in my card.   I hope you will try this card, making the hot air balloon was so fun and the color combinations are endless.
