Pooka's 2nd challenge

Details for today's challenge can be found here http://pookascrayon.blogspot.com/
On September 19, 1783, the first hot-air balloon was sent aloft in Versailles, France with animal passengers including a sheep, rooster and a duck. On that same day in 1964, I was born. This is my entry for today's challenge:
There was a lot of cutting involved here. I had to create a hot-air balloon with some shimmery cording and a circle of lilac cardstock cut with a QuicKutz nesting circle die cut and I paper pieced the basket. The stamps are from Technique Tuesday's Dog and Pony Show set and I colored them with Hobby Lobby brush pens after stamping them with Archival Ink. Then I cut them out and glued the rooster and sheep on. The duck is attached with a pop dot. In the background, the trees are a Cricut die cut that I made with my Design Studio software and the Cricut Sampler cartridge. I handwrote the date on the basket with a brown brush marker. It is done(though I wish I had a stamp that says "You lift me UP").
Also, on my birthday, but I cannot remember the year, Steamboat Willie was released. I wanted to use that one but for lack of time, I found another event to create this card for.
Please remember my husband in your prayers as we travel to see a specialist for his loss of 50% of his vision.
Sadly, I may have to miss tomorrow's challenge but I hope you will participate. Be back soon.
