Scrapping Outback February Challenge

For February the challenge at Scrapping Outback is to be inspired by the image as below:

I had the perfect photos to choose for this challenge, from a very recent hot air balloon ride I did over the Yarra Valley with my daughter (a 50th birthday present). It was an enjoyable experience, except for the 3am wake up. The morning was otherwise glorious, and the sunrise did not disappoint, nor did the balloon ride, quite exhilarating. 
For my layout, I was inspired by the colours, and I chose to create my background using string to apply the colour, I was trying to capture the feeling of sunrise, it didn't quite work on paper the same as it did in my head, but I'm quite happy with the effect regardless. 
My chipboard pieces are a balloon die cut from JT's later cuts, which I coloured using Zig wink of stella brush, and another 2 that I stamped onto chipboard using a My favourite things stamp. 
Thanks for looking at my layout and any comments you may leave.
