Cheery Lynn Amazing

Hi, I'm here today with a new card for Cheery Lynn Designs.  I don't often make shaped cards and thought I'd give it a try, I thought the round shape nicely complimented the hot air balloon.

The bottom layer is the largest from the Circle Scalloped die set topped by the largest Circle Classic Silver Stackers and then another scalloped circle was added to that cut from design paper.  The two large bottom layers were colored with distress inks.  

I cut the balloon die, backed it with the matching angel wing and colored both with distress inks.  The compass, and barbed wire were also colored with distress ink as was the Fishtail Banner.  The sentiment is a stamp from Riley & Company.  I used foam tape to pop up the banner, balloon and compass dies and for added bling, glued flat-backed rhinestones to the compass and balloon.  

I cut the Fleur de Lis and used a frantage silver embossing powder on it for an aged look before gluing to the banner.
