Recycled for Art's Sake - Cuttlebug to the Rescue

Quiz time:When is an aluminium seal for a tin of coffee capable of soaring miles above the earth?

When it's a hot air balloon!

Using a ProvoCraft Cuttlebug 'gears' folder, I ran my seal through my Cuttlebug and, eventhough I had planned to cut off the pesky little part where you pull it off the can, I was thrilled to discover that THAT was the part making it a balloon!
And voila! My Bon Voyage card created because I drink coffee!

What I Did
For the balloon - Cuttlebug 'Gears' folder, aluminium lid, alcohol inks, embroidery floss, postage stamp sticker for basket.
Card stock from DCWV. I ran several Kaleidoscope ink pads along the paper and then used the bicycle stamp I purchased from the $1.50 bin at Michaels.
Sentiment  and bottom border from a kit ( sorry, don't remember the name).
Adhesive - double-sided tape and Glossy Accents
Rangers distress and Archival Ink (olive) for edges.

Thank you for stopping by!
