Sketch Saturday Challenge #265

There is a new sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday!  This week's sponsor is Milk Coffee, a new digi site for me.  Super cute images and we were given one to work with.  I chose Michelle in Hot Air Balloon.
Digital Stamp - Michelle in Hot Air Balloon
Really fun to play with and I thought it was perfect for this week's sketch too.  Here is Sketch #265 (designed by Jen):
I was going through my paper pads and found the most perfect paper pack in my stash by Doodlebug Designs "Flower Box".  I also used a couple dies I've had for quite some time.  The stitch sun and cloud are from Lil' Inkers Designs.  It is SO nice to finally use things. 

I thought the sun and cloud were perfect for the upper embellishments and the flowers for the lower embellishment. 
For the 3 strips across the bottom of the sketch, I used a PaperTrey Ink die "In the Meadow".  The flowers were cut free hand from the patterned paper.
