Up, up and away

I'm fresh back from a lovely holiday in the Wye Valley/ Forest of Dean area , such a beautiful part of our country...never been there before, but will definitely go again ! We enjoyed lovely weather, wonderful scenery and long walks with Mathilda, our Great Dane, she loved it too but I think she's glad to be home for a rest!
This week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' has the theme of 'balloons or bunting' , if you look closely you can see that my card has both! I used a sweet Tiny Townie stamp from Stamping Bella, coloured with copics and fussy cut, the popped her up on foam pads on top of the DP. I added a stamped sentiment and two little hearts.
Thanks for visiting, hope you choose to play along with this fun challenge.
Enjoy the weekend
