Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my card for our 'New' challenge at One Stitch at a Time where our theme is 'New'. I used new papers for my card-First Edition 'Love Letters'. I printed my digi directly onto one of the papers and matched the rest of card. I embellished with pearls and gems on the swirls and hearts on the papers then added buttons to my hot air balloon. Lastly I added a 'Birthday Wishes' glitterations greeting as my sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
