Moxie Fab & Hero Arts

A couple of challenges mixed into one card:

I created this card for three purposes...

Here is the inspiration layout to create from

The layout is from Jen Jockisch.

I wanted to use the circles in the background with the rectangle as the main image. I started with that idea and the travel theme and ended up with my card. :)

The papers are all from October Afternoon Thrift Shop. Delicious papers. Of course that didnt' stop me from stamping on some of them. 

I used the Hero Arts - Friends Definition Cling, Collage Take Time, Antique Map Background and the sentiment is from the Essential Messages Clear set.

The lovely skyline is from B Line Designs called CTD031F Old Neighbors.  (Love this stamp and haven't used it enough)

Inks included Ranger Distress (Bundled Sage, Faded Jeans), Versafine Vintage Sepia, Memento Rich Cocoa.

Hope you are gearing up for a lovely weekend.  We are going to have a few people over on the 4th to celebrate and looking forward to some inky time!

  18. I really like all the circle elements. Very appropriate for a travel themed card (being that the Earth is round and all). I like the deep browns you acheived. Very vintage. Great sentiment too.
