happy place

the current challenge at runway inspired challenge totally speaks to me! i don't know why...maybe it's the vintage feel, the suitcases, or the colors. i just don't know! but i do know, i was totally inspired to make a card!! here's the inspiration photo:

i used my paper smooches stamps - get outta town and word salad for my card. love me some paper smooches! and here's the card:

i popped up the suitcase (and one of the flowers) for dimension. i colored in the handles of the suitcase with a light brown to keep the vintage feel with the light color of the suitcases. the sentiment was white heat embossed. and i used my white gel pen to add the little dots to the hibiscus flowers. it's hard to tell, but they'r'e actually two different pinks, well...they're almost two different pink colors! lol! 

oh, i also added just a touch of glossy accents to the, slightly hidden navy heart. i LOVE that little hidden heart, and the glossy accents totally make it work, in my head, anyway! :)
so that's it! i really had fun with this one, and i just can't get over that inspiration photo for some reason! love it!
