Let it Fly at Polka Doodles!!

Wow, where has the week gone? I have worked two days this week and it has made the week go even quicker than usual!! Looking forward to a crafty weekend at home!
Well it is time for a new challenge at Polka Doodles and our theme this week is "Let it Fly" - so butterflies, angels, birds, hot air balloons, aeroplanes - you get the idea!!!
As always there are fabulous Polka Doodles prizes up for grabs so come and join in  our challenge!!
I had fun creating a card for this challenge with the help of my 6 year old son, using images, papers and elements from the new Bonbon Belle's double cd.

 I used the pre-coloured hot air balloon which I layered and cut out the flags so it looks like they were blowing in the wind! I also 3D'd the basket and the flying sign, which I added the sentiment from!! I put it all onto the cloud paper which is also from the BonBon Belles double cd. I then added the bird and the buttons! I decided  the hot air balloon needed a passenger so I found this sweet little girl on the Double Sprinkle of Kraft cd rom. To finish off the card I rubbed some white shimmer chalk over the bird and clouds!
I hope that you can join us this week... why not use some Polka Doodles images, we always love to see them on your projects!! There are so many amazing images on the cd collections or if you cannot wait for the cd to arrive in the mail why not find something in the digi world section where you can download your purchase immediately.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
