You are so right, that balloon was screaming for that pretty paper piecing. Love your choice of papers and colors. the shading looks awesome behind the balloon, too. :)

Gorgeous colors. Love the paper piecing on the balloon. I never thing to do that with digi images. Love the black behind the image panel, it really pops and makes the balloon stand out even more.
