Father's Day swap card

If you are in my Father's Day swap...close your eyes ;-). I feel ok about posting this now, as my swaps will be in tomorrow's mail, and the chances of anyone in the swap looking here are minimal.

I got the colour scheme from the Seaside Ribbon Originals. Ballet Blue, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue. The background on the Chocolate Chips is the Square Pegs wheel. The three ballons are Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Sage Shadow ink on Whisper White, stamped using the circle from the Simply Circles set. 'Love' is from All about U. 'You' is from Cheery Chat and 'Dad' is done using the Classic Alphabet. All three are in Choc Chip ink. The three ballons are mounted on Dimensionals, with a piece of silver cord attached, and tied together with a piece of Seaside ribbon (mounted with a glue dot). the Sage Shadow border piece is punched using the 1/4 inch square, and the dots are gel pen.

I was looking up at a Galah in a gum tree yesterday and was startled to see that the exact same colours were reflected up there! Bashful Blue to Ballet Blue sky, Sage Shadow gum leaves, and Chocolate Chip bark on the tree! No, I'm not losing really was the same colours.
