Did you see the cool inspiration photo for this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge?! I really wanted to play along, and I had a Bon Voyage card in mind for a friend who is going to Hawaii next week (lucky her!).
Here it is:
But I have to admit, I cheated...a bit! I ended up substituting kraft for the gold, just because the card was shaping up to be a softer tone, and I thought the gold would flash it up a bit too much. But I did sneak it in just a little by sparkling up the hibiscus - does that count?! Just to jazz it up a smidge, I used glossy accents on the sunnies, and some liquid black enamel on the airplane. (The black enamel looks bumpy in the picture, but it's actually really smooth irl). I think I should have rounded a corner or two, to soften it up a bit, but, I didn't...oh well!! I also cheated by sneaking in a Lawn Fawn sentiment - I was really wanting it to say Bon Voyage, and the sweet Get Outta Town set from PS didn't have that specific sentiment - hopefully it's ok :)
Here's the inspiration:
Hope you are having a lovely day!
Thank you SO much for stopping by!
