Up Up And Away With Pile It On

This week at Pile It On our Sponser is Heart Song Designs. They offer hand drawn digital images from elegant to super cute. You should visit them at Heart Song Designs Shop Here.
The Challenge Theme this week is Up Up And Away. Use any image that relates to things in the air, birds, butterflies, the stars or the sun, airplanes to balloons. There is a lot of choices to work with.  

For this card I chose two images by Heart Song and combined them along with these great papers from Basic Grey. The image is colored with Copics on Core'dinations Pearl Paper. I did some Faux stitching and added a couple different ribbons and these wonderful buttons I bought at a Button fair today. That was so much fun, but it is another story for another time.

You can see the shimmer from the paper best in this photo.

You can see all the layers the best from this angle I think.

This is a good Close-up too.
The sketch I used is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Gotta Love these.
