Bon Voyage!

My hubby is away right now. He's in Croatia visiting his mom. I usually go with him, but this year I stayed behind because I'm 7 months pregnant. Missing him like crazy, but I made him this card before he left and then handed it to him at the airport.

The inside is stamped: "You mean the world to me" from PTI's Masculine Motifs set. I stamped the background sentiments and then covered it with a piece of vellum to resemble a soft sky with clouds. Then I attached it with brads to hold it in place instead of adhesive. The two planes represent him leaving and then coming back home!

The ink is Brilliance Rocket Red, Brilliance Coffee Bean and Versamagic Ocean Depth. The paper and twine is Papertrey Ink.

Here's the stamp set I used to make the card.

It's by Michael's Recollections. I really like those little Recollection stamp sets and you can't beat the price, it was on sale for $3.50! Just make sure to use pigment inks, because the dye inks don't work with acrylic very well.

By the way, look how close the color scheme is to this week's Card Camp color challenge. I almost entered this card, but it had a speck of blue in it so I think it might not qualify. I will definitely be making a few cards this week using this color scheme though. I LOVE it!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by. And don't forget to enter my giveaway HERE. Hope you're having a nice sunny summer day!
