Here to Give You a Lift; CPS #129

Well, it's another Summer Time Sunday and we're heading off to swim in a pool and have dinner with family, but I was able to get this card finished first! I like the layout....I knew I could use my new Button Basics somehow!

Here's the CPS Challenge:

And here's my take:

I love how all the balloons are on the same plane, but the strips of paper are askew, which gives it a little "lift". I feel you can't have too many of these "just because" cards on hand, so I made two today.

Alrighty then, off to make some stuffed tomatoes for dinner. Thanks to Taya for the recommendation!
