Sugar Creek Hollow Week 23 Vintage Travel

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!!
This week at Sugar Creek Hollow it is all about Vintage Travel, so find some vintage bikes, balloons, boats or cars etc, create something in the vintage or shabby chic style and link up with us for a chance to win.   I had a fun time this week creating a "Halloween Vintage Hot Air Balloon" collage.  I used it to create a "Hot Air  Balloon Ticket" to Halloweenville.
Here is the collage I created using some images I found online.

I added three skeletons to the Halloween Hot Air Balloon Basket,  Used a Score sheet from Gecko Galz for my background.  I added some eyes to the pumpkin balloon.  Here is my Card with ticket below!!  I decided to add some black behind my collage for this piece.
It was hard for me to not cover the whole card with embellishments, but since I did a lot of digital work, I wanted it to be seen :0).  I used some brown blingy bling mesh, ivory leaves, black pearl drop trim and orange mulberry roses from Pro 31 Designs!  The Green and Orange seam binding are from Really Reasonable ribbon.
Close up of the pumpkin on black.
Here are some more close ups.  Love how the orange mulberry roses look with the ivory leaves and black pearl drops!!

I used Rnager's Distress ink in Vintage photo on the edges of my pieces.  I used pop dots to elevate the black pumpkin hot air balloon piece so that I could slide the ticket in behind it.
Here is a picture of the ticket.  I started out with a vintage ticket, that I added some more text to in Inkscape.
I also added the hot air balloon in the corners.  I inked the edges of this with Vintage Photo by Ranger as well.
Make sure you visit the rest of the Design Teams blogs to see their creations!!  Then come by Sugar Creek Hollow and Link up!!
Hope you have a fabulous week!!
Thank you for visiting!!
