Nacho Average Stampers weekly challenge

I have joined 3 different yahoo 'groups' to help me with being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. The challenge for this week, and for this group is to use a new stamp set that will be revealed in the holiday mini catalog due out Sept 01,2009.
Here in Albuquerque, balloon season is right around the corner. Albuquerque hosts the International Balloon Fiesta every year in October. As a host city, we have 500/+ balloonist from all over the country and from various countries all over the world, who attend every year. As a community, we support and attend these week long events. Once I saw this stamp set, I had to have it! :) I hope you like what I came up with. It is a 'post-card' to support the balloonists. I used kraft card stock, along with two of the new in-colors: melon mambo and soft suede. I used the new melon mambo ribbon to give it that finished touch. (ok, so I add ribbon/buttons to everything. They are my favorite embellishments.)
