Favorite Movie: Inspired by UP!

Hello my friends, Hope you are having a wonderful day. Gina K is looking for a new Guest designer, and this month's challenge is to create a card inspired by a movie. Well, lately the only movies I watch are Kids movies, my daughter is a movie fan, and she watches a movie and memorizes it. One of the latest movies we've been watching (more than 50 times) is UP! We love the whole movie especially when the  Carl and Ellie (when they are kids) are talking about Paradise Falls and she says it is in "South America, it's like America, but South" I think that is my favorite line  :) maybe because I am from South America, sadly I've never been in Venezuela.

Anyway, I got this movie as my inspiration and I used Rupa's new set "Welcome Home"
Details: I started my card with a piece of Little Boy Blue. Then I took a piece of White and I started creating the background. I cut some clouds shapes and adhere them to my CS with temporary adhesive, I used Aspen mist Chalk Ink for the clouds, I played with the same clouds in different directions and and between clouds to give it a much more natural look. Then I cut a circle in lemon Drop CS and added some Lemon Drop glitter. I stamped the house and the dog in Ivory CS in Memento Rich Cocoa, colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with OMS. I cut some oval shapes using Basic Grey Paper to create the grass and added some straight stitches. The balloons are dew drops in different colors. I matted this with a piece of Lipstick Red CS

I have to confess I had a lot of fun creating this card!!
