CARD: Above the Clouds

Hi!  Did you miss me?  I'm sorry to have been gone so long, but my "real" job took over for awhile!  

The new annual catalog launched on Monday!  What a great catalog -- some fun sets, plus some new colors and paper!  Love it!!  This card is one of the first I made -- it uses the Above the Clouds stamp set and coordinating punch!  Being from Albuquerque, where hot air balloons fly year round, this was a must have!  The punch makes it so easy to create a sky full of balloons!
