ISSC16 and TSGA - Take Flight

WOW!!! I can't believe my blog was quiet all week. Oops!!! Sorry about that!! I was out of town last weekend and then I was finishing up May's Dirty Dozen gallery.  It'll be busy around here for the next week or so though with TSG's sneak peeks starting on Tuesday.

In the mean time, it's TSGA ( There She Goes Again) week and time for this week's iSpy Sketch.   At There She Goes the girls have been highlighting "Aim for the Clouds", "Life's a Beach", and "A Drink a Day".  

This week's iSpy sketch is based upon a card by Dyane Fogleboch (Precious Stamps @ SCS) and is based on this card.

I manipulated the sketch just an eensy teensy bit... Of course, I had to!! (that's in my nature I'm sure of it). 

For my card I wanted to try to go a little "outside" the box by using the clouds from MFT as the horizontal panel across the card.  Each of the clouds were run through my Cuttlebug using various embossing folders and popped up at varying heights to add a bit of dimension.  Shall I just say quite a few pop dots were harmed in the making of this card.  LOL!!! I then used the two hot air balloons from the TSG set called "Aim for the Clouds"  (currently on sale for $12.75).  They were both watercolored and then popped up

Hope you like it!!! Now pop on over to the TSG blog to see what the girls have used for the TSGA week

Don't forget about popping over to the iSpy blog to see how the girls have interpreted this week's sketch!!

There's some great eye candy at both blogs!!!

Fun fun card! Great job with the sketch - I think this also qualifies for the Moxie challenge if you are interested...
