Transportation Theme at Exploring Cricut and My Time to Craft

Here is my entry for this week's Exploring Cricut challenge called Planes, Trains and Automobiles and for My Time to Craft #190.  My favorite cartridge is Close To My Heart Artiste which doesn't have those vehicles so I chose a hot air balloon which it does have. The "Oh Happy Day" banner is also one of the coordinating stamps that come with the Artiste Cricut Collection and the "Birthday Greetings" stamp is from Just a Number which has a wonderful assortment of sayings that can be used inside a card also. The greeting was first stamped in Versamark and then stamped in Ruby ink and then Clear Embossing Powder was applied with a heat tool.  The sky paper is very old computer paper which I thought would fit as an appropriate backdrop for the hot air balloon.  The base of the card is Desert Sand CS and the balloon was made with Ruby CS and Elemental paper pack.  I used Silver Shimmer Trim (which is also adhesive) between the sky and base of the card.  A couple of small strands of black baker's twine attach the balloon to the basket.

Thanks for taking a look at my card! 
I will be celebrating my 100th post as a blogger soon.  I am planning some type of giveaway but am open to hearing your suggestions too. What kind of requirements should I have to be eligible to win?  Please leave a comment below if you have any suggestions for me.  (I think this is post #97 already!)
