All Aboard Adventurer Birthday Card

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Sorry my blog has been so quiet-I've had a nasty couple of horsefly bites on my hand so its been very swollen and painful which then led to blood poisoning and this obviously made me very poorly! Anyway I wanted to share a card I made a little while ago. Like I have said in previous posts I have been looking around to see what I could incorporate in my makes and decided I should use some of my old photos as they are gorgeous and just sit for years and years on a hard drive doing nothing! 
For this card I chose this photo and a digi of a hot air balloon. I tricked my printer into printing directly onto the design paper by cutting it the size of a photo print and putting it through my printer as a photo. Worked well and I love the effect! I used complimenting paper as my base, then added sentiments I cut from Papermania All Aboard paper. I placed these and the photo on orange cardstock as a mat. I then placed all my elements together, with the hot air balloon on top of the photo.

 I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
