Miles Apart, But Close In My Heart

Happy Sunday evening, everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start. My family and I are in great spirits because our team won the 2014 Fifa World Cup today. Yay, Germany!

Being that my husband is German and our three boys were born in Germany and are half-German (we were also married there and lived there for five years) there was, as you might expect, quite a bit of hooting and hollering going on in our house this afternoon.

So since I was in a celebratory mood, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to play along with the new Mama Elephant & Me Challenge.

This month's inspiration photo is all about celebrations, so I used everyone's favorite party favor -- balloons! I used one of my favorite go-to stamp sets, Up & Away and colored it in with Spectrum Noirs, pulling my colors from the inspiration photo as well, though I did swap red for the hot pink, to keep it gender-neutral. I paired it with a sentiment from my other favorite new set, In My Heart.

This will be another card going in my box for Operation Write Home.

I hope you like it!
