Happy Travels.

This card is the love child of 2 things. First, the TRAVEL THE WORLD challenge at Sir Stamp Alot and secondly, my newest papers from DCWV - Citrus. The papers are so bright and uplifting that my mind kept returning to a hot-air balloon (not my original idea) and that lead me to think about travelling.
For the clouds I just googled some different languages, printed them, and cut them with the Cricut. I don't actually have a cartridge with a cloud shape, so I used the treetop layer from Stretch Your Imagination and I think it worked just fine.

On an unrelated note..... the other day I pulled up to the store and noticed the bumper sticker on the car I was parking beside said "So many pedestrians, so little time." I chuckled a little as I was parking. Then the driver of the other car got in, mistakenly put their car in drive instead of reverse, and nearly hit a young couple walking by the front of the car!!! I guess there really is truth to all humor!!
Anyhoo, this card is for these challenges -
