  • Today's card uses images from the new Miles to Go set.  I decided I needed a car for these images, so went with the Holiday Cruiser set!  I modified the car a bit, cut off the top and piled my suitcases back there, tied with twine so they won't fall off along the way!

    I colored the image with Copic Markers: YG95, YG93, BG10, B28, B24, B21, YR15, YR14, Y19, Y17, R29, R22, E44, E43, W7, W5, W3.

    The designer paper is from BasicGrey and a JoAnn's pack I believe....found them in my scrap bin.

    I used some fun May Arts ribbon along the side of my card....I stretched it in places and tied it with twin in others for a fun Dr. Seuss style embellishment!  I also used the twine to sew down my sentiment.

    Hope you've had fun checking out our cards featuring Our Craft Lounge and May Arts products!

    Love that sentiment - it is echoing down the years........ great card Michelle, and I am impressed with the way you have used the ribbon on the side. Very novel.

    Well of course it goes without saying that the stamps are fantastic, but those papers and the burlap trim are just wonderful too!
