Hot Air balloon card

I have a fun digital stamp card today using Copic markers to color it in. I used the following colors on my card:
B32, B34 and B00
R89, R46, R24, R22
BG32, BG11, BG34, and BG10
G00 and G000
E13, E25, and E33

The aqua cardstock is by Stampin Up and the blues by Sunborn. I did something new for the embossed edge on the left. I had a regular cloud embossing folder that could only be used for a crosswise card and I really wanted to use it for my background but had already adhered my image to the die cuts that wouldn't fit on the card crosswise. I took my piece of blue cardstock and placed it into the cloud folder to the top of the paper and to the very left of my Cuttlebug. With the cardstock hanging outside the embossing folder I grab a border embossing folder by Tim Holtz with Sizzix. It's about 1 1/4 inches wide and fit perfectly on my cardstock just below the clouds and then through my Cuttlebug.  I thought it was the perfect scene for my hot air balloon. What do you think?

Die cuts by Spellbinders, ink by Ranger, chipboard by Paper accents which I painted with Stamp N Plus powdered chalk and paint, pearls by Want 2 Scrap, and the sentiment is by Pebbles.

Thanks for looking.
