Focus on the journey...

My inspiration for this card is the free suitcases digi from Tiddly Inks, it made me think about travelling, moving on and journeys, then I remembered a quote.  I love quotes and when I hear one I like I write it down in a little notebook, so out came the notebook and I went about making my card.

The base card is Kraft card and the backing sheet is a freebie found in the Creata Facebook Group.  I wrapped twine around the backing paper, and tied it in the center with some string.  I edged a car tag from my stash with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and threaded it on to the twine.

The detour sign and hinges on the spine of the card are from stash.  The Aerial Derby picture is from a set of Making Cards Magazine papers.  The gear and buckle die cuts are made from the same papers using Joy! dies.  I threaded Joy! Natural Sense ribbon through the buckle dies and added two buttons from my stash. The egg timer die cut is made from an old atlas page using a Joy! die.

The photo is from a set of Victorian Photographs by Joanna Sheen.  I created the sentiment on my Serif Craft Artist Programme using the Dreaming in Chalk Daisytrail Digikit, and is mounted on foam pads.

The suitcases digi is coloured using Graph It markers 3120, 3125, 3130, 3140, 3245 and mounted on foam pads.
