Road Trip!

How about another My Favorite Things' sneak? I couldn't resist--this set is just so cute!!! As soon as I saw this set I thought it *had* to be done with a map somewhere on the card. So, I was browsing around Michaels and saw this paper pad called Spring Break. I love the colors and one pattern was of an old map. Bingo!

I stamped the image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out and popped it up on foam squares on top of a piece of road map scrap book paper. The Road Trip sign was cut from another piece of the patterned paper. I just love how this card turned out!

Here's the inside. I stamped the suitcase image on patterned paper, gave it some shading with a Copic marker, and cut it out. All sentiments (plus several more) are included in the set.

To see more DT offerings, be sure to hit Kim's blog. She'll have links to everyone with something to share :) And don't forget: the release party is Wednesday night from 8:00pm to 10:00pm in the MFT Company Forum over at SCS. Then the Shop and Hop starts at 10:00pm. Don't miss it!
