Pumpkin Pie Thank You

Good morning, crafting friends...

I am taking the opportunity to combine 2 inspirations in one go (don't think I have done that before) so here goes:
the latest sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping:

and the latest color combo from Color Throwdown, love the cheerful feel of Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade. 

Here is my take:

I am using the air ballon image from the Moving Forward stamp set, stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I cut up the strips of papers and adhered them crooked. I kinda like the lopsided look of it.

I felt it was a little empty after the Whisper Whiter Baker's Twine bow and the Lucky Limeade Designer Printed Brads were added to it. So my 8 year old son suggested I added some clouds (from the Up, Up and Away stamp set) and the little birdie that comes with the Moving Forward set :) and then we called it good and we went to bed :)

Thank you for taking a peek at what we came up with :)

Happy stamping,

I love this! It is so playful and fun. I like how your layers are offset and the clouds are a perfect addition!
