Hello, my lovely friends! How are you on this wonderful day? We're in the midst of a rainy week. My flowers are loving every minute of it. I enjoy the rain unless I have to drive in it or take project photos. Dreary days do not make for fun photo sessions.
Today we're announcing a new two week challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog! Zoe is our hostess with the theme of 'Oh, the places you'll go'. She asks to create a vintage or shabby chic project with travel as the central theme. Think planes, trains, automobiles, ships, maps, and globes.
At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics and inspiration from my amazing teammates just click on the blog link above.
My dream is to visit the historic cities of Europe. I have a dear friend in France, and I can think of nothing more delightful than to tour Paris with her. This card has my bags packed and ready to travel!
Each paper element is distressed, layered and stitched, then popped up with foam adhesive. A digital image provides a dreamy focal point.
The Eiffel Tower and luggage set are stamped on design paper and cut. Distress paints add a shabby touch to the filigree metal elements and Prima Art Stones.
The flowers are handcrafted from design paper. My tutorial for these flowers can be found here.
Thank you so much for sharing your time with me!! I hope you'll be joining in the challenge and show us where you want to go! It's a super fun theme that you can take in any direction your heart desires. I also want to thank you for your kind comments on my last project. I feel incredibly blessed to have such an amazing crafty family! Sending wishes for light, love, and happiness!
