Up, up and away - GDP079

This week, the Global Design Project challenge is amusment park. When I see a hot air balloon, it takes me to downtown Disney in Florida. Have you been? I was there a couple of years ago for a Stampin' Up! conference. At the time, they were renovating Downtown Disney and giving it a new look. If you have been recently, comment below and let me know ... are the renovations complete? Is the balloon still there? 

I cut the detailed hot air balloon with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!. The set comes with 6 intricate pieces that you can layer behind the balloon to add color (see the image below). I was going for a clean, less busy look ... and well, let's be honest, a quicker solution. (The balloon elements can be fussy and I am not always patient with fussy stamping).

I traced the hot air balloon Thinlit on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with a pencil. Then, I fussy cut it out with Paper Snips, cutting to the inside of the balloon pencil line. You can see that it was a smidge wider than the Very Vanilla detailed hot air balloon shape, but that did not bother me.
