Destination...Sweden!



Oh how I wish that were true for me! Since I know that's not going to happen I'm enjoying getting creative with the Bon Voyage Collection! As always, Magnolia have come up with the sweetest images for our creating pleasure. The entire creative process, the coloring, paper selection, layout, embellishments and final product are my form of therapy! So here is another card I have created this time using #277, Bon Voyage Tilda and #625 Suitcase with Sign, both available from Diana at Magnolia-licious.

I found this delightful "Luggage" dp at my local Scrapbooking store. It is from the Little Yellow Bicycle "Pack your Bags" collection. Since it's double sided it worked out wonderfully for this card...



Here's Tilda up close and personal...



Here is my card recipe...

Cardstock - SU
DP - Little Yellow Bicycle
Copics -
Skin - E00, E000, E0000
Hair - E.13, E15, E15, E17, E19
Shirt and socks - G20, G24, G94
Suitcase - E25, E27, E33
Sign - E30, E34, E35, E55
Pants - YR00, YR61, YT63
Spica Pen - Gold
Shadow - C00, C1, C3, YR0000
Green Pearls
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon - SU
Butterflies - Karen Marie Klip
Glimmer Mist
Martha Stewart Punches - Branch, Punch around the page
Sewing Machine and thread
Sentiment - a freebie from I can't remember where

On the inside of my card I used the dp and the sentiment about butterflies...



Here is a close up of the sentiment panel which I printed in brown...



I so appreciate your stopping by for a look at my latest creation.

Hugs,
Barb

  13. Barb,
    Beautiful card as always. I love that you used a lot of fall colors. I'm grateful for the cooler weather here too. I heard that Southern California ( where we just moved from) is having a heat wave. lol Their turn for a little heat.
    Hope your having a great day!
