Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge #32: Winter Vacation Gateway

Hello friends, how are you today?
It's Saturday again and I would like to inform you that Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge is having a new challenge today, yay!

The theme for this week challenge is Winter Vacation Gateway.
As the weather in my country is tropical rainforest climate throughout the year, I don't really have the chance to go for a Winter Vacation Gateway, so sad! :(

Anyway, although i don't have the chance to enjoy the winter vacation, but you may consider to come to Malaysia for vacation as one of the activities you can do in March is participate in the International Hot Air Ballon Fiesta, which only held once/ twice a year.
And guess what, today we are starting the 2015 Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Putrajaya, what a co-incident!
This special event just give me an inspiration to create this card which is perfect for today's challenge!

Oh yay! Here is my card for today challenge.
This cute little Hot Air Balloon Birdie is sponsored by Doodle Pantry

Do you notice that I actually do a paper piecing on the image to create a 3D image on my card?

If you would like to have a different experience of winter gateway in March, do come and join the fun with me!
Hope you like my card today!
