Take Care

Hello friends! It is new challenge day at Waltzingmouse Sketch and I'm excited to see all of the wonderful creations with this sketch as the inspiration -
I bought some vintage postage stamps while we were on vacation last summer and have been having lots of fun playing with them lately (look for a card using them in an upcoming Paper Crafts special issue! ;)) With that as the start, I thought travel-themed papers and a sentiment would be perfect. I finished the card with a layer of filmstrip ribbon and some baker's twine.

Link up by Friday for a chance to be crowned Top Mouse and/or win a set of your choice from Waltzingmouse Stamps! Whee!!

Supplies: Stamps - Say it Loud, Very Vintage Labels 4 (WMS), Cardstock - Brilliant Blue (SU!), Vintage Cream (PTI), Ink - Night of Navy, Pool Party, Real Red (SU!), Baker's Twine (Country Clean), DP/Sticker - Boarding Pass Collection (October Afternoon), Labels 4 Dies (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug, Filmstrip Ribbon (Tim Holtz), Vintage Stamps
