Vintage Travel

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called VINTAGE TRAVEL.  Your vintage or shabby chic card can be all about about vintage means of transportation or even traveling somewhere on vacation, vintage style.

This monochromatic card was fun to make even though it took me almost a week to make it.  Well not really, but I did start it last Sunday and then it sat in pieces on my desk until last night.  I have come out of retirement to look after my Son-in-Law's books and while it will eventually be a part-time job, right now it is more than full-time and it sure is interfering with my crafting time.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

It's All About the Vintage - Doilies
Pixie Dust Studio - Vintage
My Heart Pieces - Use Designer Paper
Creative Belli - Vacation/Travel
Shopping Our Stash - Monochromatic
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Swirls & Lace
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
There's Magic in the Air - Doilies
