Word Art Wednesday Challenge #205

          It's Word Art Wednesday Challenge time and that means I am here today with my Design Team card for Challenge #205! Woo Hoo! For today's card I made a gate fold card measuring 4 ¼” x 5 ½”. For the front of the card I scored every 1/8" on each side of the gate card's opening to add some dimension. For the hot air balloon, I actually used The Stamps of Life lightbulb2stamp set and the Lightbulb Dies. I had a hot air balloon set but it was too small for what I needed but with a little thinking I was able to use this light bulb set instead. So don't ever be afraid to think outside the box and see in what other ways you can use your stamp and die sets. That's why I love this art, it always allows me to challenge my creativity ;)
          We would love to have you join in on the challenge and while doing so you could win some great prizes! After you have finished at my blog, just click here to be taken to the Word Art Wednesday blog. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I wish you a wonderful and blessed week!
