Trio of Hot Air Balloons

Well, 6:30 a.m. this morning we got a text message from our daughter saying the baby was on the move and as she is having a home birth, I didn't want to ring her during the day to see how far along she was so we were thinking at 6 pm tonight that she must be having a long labour and then about 15 minutes later we get an update, that after starting about 1:45 a.m. last night the contractions had started to fizzle out about lunchtime and bubs has called it quits!!!!. So the wait starts once more, lol. They weren't the false labour pains and I've heard of some women that have on and off labours. I told her to tell that baby that it was time to meet the rellies and he or she couldn't avoid it!!! So hopefully we will get another message later to say "It's Time" again, lol.
As promised I'm back with a second card using my freebie hot air balloon stamp. This time I stamped it three times and paper pieced them using similar toned papers. Some more cloudy background and a Tim Holtz  stamp.
Here is the card......

Black cardstock for the cardbase from stash
Grey cardstock  for the matte from stash
White cardstock from stash
SU Rose Red cardstock
Scraps of DP (not sure whose)
Sentiment is from Tim Holtz's 100th Collection (one of those sets I decided I needed and this is the first time I've inked any of them up - I've had the set for about 12 months or more!!!)
D/S tape roller
Foam Dots
Brown pearls from stash
Memento Black inkpad
SU Ballent Blue inkpad
