Repeat Impressions WHAT IF? Wednesday

A new WHAT IF? Wednesday sketch challenge from Repeat Impressions begins today. You have nearly two weeks to create a card using the sketch, upload it to your blog or on-line gallery, and link it up to the Repeat Impressions blog for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate. The sketch and all the details can be found at the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built. You will also find the creations by the RI Rock Stars. You can follow these links to their blogs:

For my card, I used stamps from the new Big Boys Toys, released a couple weeks ago. I paper-pieced the hot air balloon. I used a Marvy corner punch on the image panel. The patterned paper is from Recollections and the matting is Tangerine Tango from Stampin' Up!

The Designer's Choice Challenge to use a stamped image, embossing and a die cut or punch will still be open for nearly another week. Your participation in that challenge will earn you a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber of your choice. Those details can be found here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Love how you have paper pieced the balloon and then used the same paper for accenting your sentiment!

I always love the way paper piecing looks with matching paper in the card design. This balloon was just crying out to be paper pieced!
