going places...

I found this great challenge on SCS for MFT stamps
(MFTWTG18) if you don't have "ride 'em cowgirl"
you can use any WTG set BUT you had to use Red, white & Blue in honour of the inauguration in the States. Well I don't have "ride 'em cowgirl" SO I called "Going Places" before my BFF could :) Yep you have to be fast when we are on the phone planning cards!
I used the mojo monday week 70 layout for this card - so I managed to do 2 challenges YEAH!!

The image is stamped with Memento black on Gina K Pure Luxury paper and coloured with copics, I did stamp her dress in Riding Hood Red and paper pieced.

The DS paper is SU's Riding Hood Red, and the blue is SU's Pacific Point - I love the bright blue with this red.

I used my nesties for the circle, and the card base is Gina K's 120lb Pure Luxury. I really like it as a base but have found you HAVE to score the fold then gently crease it otherwise you may not have a clean fold.

I did have to add some colour to the land on the map; didn't think it would look right with white or red! The water is coloured with copics then I added blue pearlescent watercolours to give it some shine.

For the labels on the suitcase I stamped the image on Gina K 120lb Pure Luxury and paper pieced them, for small white images this is great to use because it is thick and easy to handle

Thanks for stopping by - have a great Wednesday, we are on our last warm day for awhile; winter temps are back on their way tomorrow

It's fabulous my friend! Is that me going to see you in March? If it is, we'd better tell her to turn the map over so she's looking at the correct side. :)
Love the patterned papers you chose too!
