Balloon Girl: Hambo Hoedown Challenge - Paper piecing

This week's challenge at the Hambo Hoedown is to use paper piecing and bold, bright colors with their cute new balloon girl digi! I had a lot of fun with this card.
Here are the details:
All papers from Bazzill Basic's "Grandma's Feather Bed"*
(*a really nice pack that includes pp and matching card stock)
Stampin' Up Square Lattice embossing folder (used on basket)
Glossy Accents
Copics and Marvy LePlume markers
EK Success border punch
Hero Arts stick-on flowers

I printed the digi onto 4 different papers, printed and solid. Each piece of the balloon is pieced from different paper. I cut out the image and popped it up on the background with Scotch foam tape. I hand drew the clouds and birds in the background.
Thanks for stopping by!
