Card Patterns Sketch #80

Here's my second post of the day... Didn't want to miss out on the Card Patterns challenge. I used the Sketch #80 as the design for my card.


The stamps are all from the Paris Exposition set from Artistic Outpost. I was really excited about using the vintage hot air balloons and the set is all about the Paris Exposition and has beautiful script and images.


The paper is from Memory Box in the Christmas Release and it is called Holly Jolly. It is the perfect background for the beautiful balloons.  The Plum Paper is from Webster's Pages. The fun trim is really a deep plum but photographed black and it is from Making Memories as part of their Halloween trims.  The border punch is EK Success. I used Memento Plum and Versafine Vintage Sepia along with Ranger's Queen's Gold Embossing Powder.

Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
