MTTC Blog Challenge no 438 Travel Theme starts 7 August 2020

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Oh my artsy crafty heart is super excited about this travel theme card! This is for a DT commitment with My Time To Craft challenge blog and the new fortnight challenge theme is travel. Travel-related elements are probably one of the fewest topics in patterned papers or embellishments that I have. But I dug around and found some stash that is a mix of old and new.

Some supply and design notes:
a. my sister does not like when I put staples on a card but occasionally I like using them for adhering as well as adding some texture...
b. this time that's what I needed--adhering and texturing for 2 colors of cording
c. the top 3 word stickers are from the "Treasure Map" Word Stickers from October Afternoon [OLD]
d. The section of cardstock with the hot air balloons is from My Mind's Eye [OLD]
e. "Thinking of You" dazzle is from Paper Wishes [NEW]
f. the bottom 3 stickers are from "Seaside Retreat" phrase and word stickers sheet from Webster Pages [NEW]
g. the small size (4" x 5.5") flat card base with a matching envelope is from Darice [NEW]
h. some silver glitter paint pen around the inside edge of the hot air balloon paper

Find this card shared at these other challenge blogs and Facebook groups:

a. Aud Sentiments #257 Anything Goes + a sentiment;

b. Mix It Up challenge blog #40 Anything Goes (w/ option of embossing)

c. Little Red Wagon challenge blog #561 Happy Days theme; [my card has a no pun intended--uplifting look to it with the hot air balloons !!!; soft to mid-tone colors; the playful banners in the patterned cardstock and even more fun with the attached cording!!]
