There's no place like home


A card for an older lady who loves to travel. The papers are from Funky Daze cd, images are magnolia and I added some travel rub ons. I got my Tim Holtz pack yesterday and as you can see the kit had everything except experience lol. Need some practice on the inking technique! Added some brown stitching and added text to the coloured flowers. Images coloured with promarkers and copics. Very busy looking here but not so bad in real life lol. I followed my sketch over at Cute Daisy May and I hope some more of you lovely crafters will get time to have a play with it, I would appreciate your support. I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Get Funky - girls girls girls
2. CRAFT challenge - flowers or Mother's Day
3. Pollycraft - distressing
