Bloggers Challenge - Travel



It's another Friday and that means another Bloggers' Challenge! This week, Lisa has selected Travel as the theme. Each of us can determine from there how we will present our project. I started thinking about stamps I generally gravitate to when creating a Bon Voyage card, but in the end, went a different route. I began with this Montage image by PSX. I purchased this stamp 10 years ago when making wedding annoucements and invitations to my husband's and my reception. We were married on the beach in St. Croix and later had a reception at our home for friends and family. I also added a sentiment and image from Artistic Outpost, as well as a sentiment by Penny Black. The background is part of a map I cut to fit and distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I could not resist adding some Air Mail Divine Twine and a vintage red button to complete my card. Looking forward to everyone's take on the challenge. I hope you will consider joining in! Best, Yvonne
