3D hot air balloon card

Hi everyone!  I have a fun hot air balloon card to share today.  Sadly, I've never seen a hot air balloon in person, but I googled images of them and was struck by how bright and colorful they are!  My card features one of Spellbinders' new Inspire line die, Up and Away.
I created this 3D balloon by die cutting and trimming the balloon portion 5 times each in a bright fun color.  I pieced the bows under each panel with a matching cardstock color.  I took a couple pictures to show you how it was done.
The clouds are from the Rainy Day die set and I colored them with a pale blue marker to make them stand out a bit.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Here's a close up picture of the balloon.
