The World's a Nicer Place...

"The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon..."  This would have been titled this "Up, Up and Away" but I'm pretty sure it's already been used.  Can anyone look at hot air balloons without that song coming to mind, probably only  youngins.  Here's a link to a video of the Fifth Dimension singing the song.  It'll be in my head all day. 

This is my card for the weekly My Favorite Things sketch challenge.  I decided to keep it free of ribbons and frills so that it can be a masculine card.  I never seem to have them when I need them.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Up, Up and Away"
ink - Memento "Rich Cocoa" and "London Fog"
paper - Bazzill "Intense Kiwi" and "Almond Cream" cs; Memory Box "Butterfield" dp
miscellaneous - My Favorite Things "Wonky Scallop Border", "Skyline Border" and "Up, Up and Away" die-namics; brads; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp club MFTWSC67 - sketch
Cupcake Inspirations CIC156 - photo (using colors as inspiration)
Whoopsie Daisy - Free and Easy
Craft Your Passion #106 - Die Cuts and Punches
Paper Sundaes #116- Anything Goes
