Be Inspired #101 - Nostalgia

Crafty Secrets is sponsoring this week's Be Inspired challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge blog. I created my card around this fun image from Crafty Secrets' Creative Scraps "Travel." Did you notice the ladies are driving and the men are in the camper? I imagine that the girls are having a grand time chatting and may miss a turn, but at least they will stop for directions :)

I embossed Core'dinations white wash card stock with my Cuttlebug Floral Screen embossing folder. They coordinate quite nicely IRL with the trees in the Crafty Secrets background. I added the Embossible Designs palm tree for added dimension. I used my Martha Stewart border punch to create grass on the green Bazzill card stock. My sentiment, "The road to a friend's house is never long - Danish Proverb" is by A Muse.

Create your own "Nostalgia" card and link it to Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #101 for a chance to win similar embellishments by Crafty Secrets!
