Up, Up and Away at Top Tip Tuesday

I'm excited to be the hostess for Challenge 90, Up, Up and Away, at Top Tip Tuesday. Once again we are sponsored by the uber talented Zlatoena's Design at Etsy and they provided the DT with three adorable images to create with. I chose Hot Air Balloon and matched it with fun papers from MME-Out of the Blue collection. Die cut clouds add some whimsy and the sentiment, which is by Verve, echoes the challenge theme and completes my easel card. 
To create this card I cut a 6x12 strip of cardstock and placed the long horizontal end on my Scor Pal. I scored (from the left) at 3" and 6" creating my score lines, folded the lines and cut my paper strips. Spellbinders circle dies frame my colored image and I attached double stick tape on the lower half to adhere to the bottom panel. Easy peasy! There are so many variations of easel cards out there in the blogsphere which I hope to get around to making this year. If you like easel cards check out Splitcoaststampers resource page and enter easel cards in search bar to get started. I also love the center step cards that the talented Desire Fourie creates and she has a tutorial page for you on her blog. Here's the front of my card which is unfortunately bowed due to my leaving it propped up for days before taking this picture, sorry.
Prize: 2 Digi images of winners choice.
Top Tipper Prize
Crimson cloud
Prize offered to 1 lucky winner is: 3 packs of die cuts.

It's FABULOUS L1! SCS is a great place for resources, but what you've done to it is perfect. The colors are so vibrant and there's so much movement with the background matching papers and I love the little lines on the clouds too!
Beautiful card for TTT. :)

This is such a sweet image! I love the rabbit's big ears, and I like how you've used a DP with hot air balloons also for the background. With all those different, bright colors your card looks very cheerful. Nice!!!
