This week, the Vintage Cafe Card Challenge blog has "travel" in the spotlight. It was fun to shuffle through my trinket stash to find an image of a vintage hot air balloon that I wanted to use on my card along with with shabby, beautiful pastel map patterned paper. A challenge is always welcome here as it pushes me in directions I normally wouldn't go, and I always enjoy the process.
I have an area in my craft room where I keep some of my most favorite one-of-a-kind pieces and find that I rarely use them, but couldn't resist using this fabric remnant with the sweetest crocheted border. Also, a large metal rimmed tea-stained circle tag that my friend Mish packed up and sent my way many months ago...both were just the right touch.
Some Studio Calico die cut clouds that I distressed and added glitter to along with Basic Grey Clippings chipboard letters and layers of die cut flowers topped with a painted and distressed Maya Road wooden button. Layers are so much fun to work with...gives me a way to incorporate so many of my favorite things onto one very small canvas.
Supplies used on this card are listed below.
Have a beautiful day!
