Hot Air Balloon Shaker Card

Have enjoyed seeing & photographing Hot Air Balloons for quite awhile. Plano, which is in N TX, holds an annual Hot Air Balloon Festival. The Festival is cancelled for this year due to Covid. Once we went to evening event that is called 'The Glow' where the Hot Air Balloons are tethered in place and lit up but do not take off. Made this card with 'The Glow' in mind (the beads inside for shaker style are to resemble the balloon glowing)

Used Lawn Fawn LF Hot Air Balloon dies both small & large to make the layers & shaker pieces. Colored with Copics which I recently bought (50% off at Michaels) and am practicing with them.

The card is photographed with a Hot Air Balloon craft item bought at one of the Festivals. When daughter was younger I used butterfly clips in her hair and when she grew up the clips became decoration on the basket.
