Today I am sharing my new arrival card, which uses some of the bits from the ColorWays Sapphire Accent Pack. The cute moon and stars with silver foil highlights were just what I needed to complete my card. They are very versatile, as they can easily be used for scrapbooking as well as cardmaking.

Paper House Seek Beauty Rub-On Transfers
Silver stars stickers
Hot air balloon rubber stamp
StazOn black ink - Tsukineko
Watercolor paint
White gel pen
White & blue cardstock

1. Use the light blue polka dot matte and double mount it on white and blue cardstock. Adhere it on a white card base. Attach two strips of striped paper along the sides and trim away excess.

2. Stamp the hot air balloon using StazOn black ink onto white cardstock, as well as transparency. Paint the balloon and basket with watercolors. Carefully cut out both balloons. Assemble the paper balloon and basket on top of the intact transparent balloon image with foam tape. Embellish the balloon with gems and use a white gel pen to add details and highlights.

3. Next, emboss clouds on white cardstock. Cut them out, overlap some, and attach them; mount some on foam tape for added dimension. Add the moon and star accents to the design (make sure to leave enough space for the sentiment).

4. Finally, adhere the rub-on sentiment and embellish the card with a sprinkling of tiny silver star stickers.
