Missing You for Paper Players #243

Hello there! This week at The Paper Players, the very sweet and talented Sandy has a fun theme challenge to play along with. Create a project with “Transportation" as the focal point. There are a lot of different ways to interpret the theme, so have some fun!
I took a pretty literal interpretation of the challenge because as soon as I saw it, I remembered some stamps I had stashed away that were waiting to see some ink. I picked up this three little images at Michaels in the $1 bin. I don’t even remember why I bought them initially. I think it was simply because they were $1 a piece. You gotta love a good deal, right?

I paired them up with a “Missing You” sentiment from My Favorite things and used the colors from the Flashback Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! The card stock colors are Real Red, Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla. I needed a card for a dear friend who I haven’t seen in a while and this was perfect. :)
Please join us over at The Paper Players this week! 
The challenge will close Friday, May 8th, 2015 at Noon (PST).

  10. A bargain is always worth it, especially when you get to make a card as nice as this Anne Marie! Cute stamps - great curly borders. I love the colour choice and the Flashback paper adds a real sense of movement, adding to the transport theme. What a great way to say 'I miss you'!
