The Wizard of Oz

It is a new challenge at The House That Stamps Built this week.  It is a Designer Choice Challenge and Cheri picked: Your Favorite Movie.  My card is inspired by The Wizard of Oz.
 
 
 
I do not know the last time I made a one layer card, it was lots of fun.  The clouds were done with a stencil and a combination of Oxide and plain Distress inks and lightly misted after.  I paper pieced and fussy cut : 9116-N, Hot Air Balloon Cluster, and stamped just the top of 2713-O, Rocky Shore Vista.
 
Join in the fun challenge and you have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impression for each entry, each week of the month, double chance for each entry using a Repeat Impressions stamp. See my discount code on the top right of my blog.
 
Be sure to check out the creative ideas that my design team buddies came up with:
