Happy Traveler's

I am happy to announce that I am the new owner of Creative Card Crew, a challenge blog. The challenges with run fortnightly or bi-weekly for us Americans. This first challenge is Animal Antics.

The sponsor for our first challenge since I became owner is Wags 'n Whiskers. They have adorable images. So head over there and take a peek at.
A big thank you to Wags 'n Whiskers.

Happy Traveler's - For my card, I used Wags 'n Whiskers Traveling Buddies. My DP is a package that I bought years ago at Walmart. The paper have all sorts of travel themed designs. I am fond of the map paper.

I used 5 brads around the circle. I also used several buttons and a tiny bow that I tied with my Bow Easy. My image was cut with a Spell Binders and I inked the edges of all the DP and image with Rangers Vintage Photo ink.
I used several Recollections flowers and some brown craft wire to make my floral spray. I had a gemstone in the center of the glitter flower, but after I photographed it, I noticed that the gemstone was missing.

My traveling buddies were colored with Copics and I gave the little girl's shirt some Stickles. I also give her shoes some Matte accents. It is still before Labor day, so she can still wear white shoes. The sidewalk was not part of the image. I free handed it. I envision them on a moving sidewalk in a airport trying to plot there course.
