Where Words Fail...Bloggers Challenge - Travel

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Reuse/Recycle Challenge, the challenge this week Travel.  The theme is open to your interpretation - you could use travel stamps/dies/cutting files, you could be traveling somewhere warm, bird stamps even fit the theme as they travel (yes that's a stretch on the challenge, but it works!).

A sweet dear friend of mine unexpectedly lost her husband last week, this is the card I created to send to her.



All stamps and custom dies are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I used the Music Speaks stamp set to stamp the Bird/Music onto papers from the Shabby Rose Paper Collection (releasing soon from ODBD).  I then used a SAMJ to add the sentiment.  The pattern paper panels are cut using the Circle Ornaments Die, layering the pieces onto Kraft panels that were cut using the Matting Circles Dies.  The large "debossed" panel was die cut using the Faithful Fish Pattern Die and Debossing Plate.  To embellish I added Seam Binding, Zva Creative Crystal Gems, Flowers, Twine a die cut flower using the flower from the Ornamental Crosses Dies and a stamped/die cut tag using the Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set and Mini Tags Dies.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Music Speaks, Mini Tag Sentiments
Card Stock - Kraft, Naturals Ivory
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival
Other - SAMJ, Twine, Flowers, Zva Creative Crystal Gems, Seam Binding, Dimensionals, Glue Does, ODBD Custom Circle Ornaments Dies/Matting Circles Dies/Mini Tags Dies/Ornamental Crosses Die/Faithful Fish Pattern Die and Debossing Plate, Moss Marker, Big Shot
