The Journey is the Reward

Another totally CASEd inspiration. I got the basic idea for this card over at a blog "is that your monkey?" I just love this sentiment stamp from A Muse. More dete's later. Just wanted to get a post up for now. Isn't this cute? When I saw the Vespa stamp I just knew I had to have it because it reminds me of my daughter who goes to Italy all the time. More later.... stay tuned! AS PROMISED a bit more details... I drew inspiration from a fellow blogger as noted, but also was inspired by ribbon from Michaels and in order to incorporate the colors from the ribbon I decided to layer the retro rectangle A Muse background stamp. I always thought this retro rectangle needed to be layered. I also used the glue pad and my stampendous fun flock for the retro background border from the "all bundled up" SU stamp set. I was really excited about the fun flock. I purchased it over at Ellen Hutson's webstore and have yet to use it. It was so fun making this card and believe it or not my daughter requested another 5 for a dinner tonight with her girlfriends and she wanted to give them each one. We just made another 6 total and out the door she went. So this card was definitely a big hit.

Oh how fun, I love the matting on the vespa. Those are some of my favorite stamps. I really like the ribbon and the stripe design.
