Follow Your Dreams...

My latest card is an easel.
Had fun with this one!
Loved digging out all my JustRite stamps and combining sets.
The challenge this month is "Wings".

The airplane stamp is from "Going Places Vintage",
the Carte Postale is from "Greetings from Paris",
and the sentiment, "Follow Your Dreams"
is part of the OLD, OLD set "All Occasion Nested Sentiments".
I heated embossed everything I could ink up,
and then carefully colored the plane with Copics markers.
The little airplane charm and metal gears are from Michael's,
and the paper is DCWV, "Cinnamon Luster" stack,
with the map background stamped with an old world map from
my very, very old stash.

I hadn't made an easel card in a long time, so I was feeling crafty! Also, I love to work with 6 x6 cards, so this worked as a SQUARE card also!
Let's just say, I really tore up my room for this one! LOL!
This terrific challenge can be found at
and goes until Wednesday, August 21st,
so you still have time to enter!

Also, entered at:
Cards for Men (use Metal)
Here Come the Boys (Square card)
The House That Stamps Built (Wings)
And as always, thanks so much for reading my post today!
Please leave a comment so I know ya'll are out there!

Wow...your card is stunning. You've used a lot of supplies, and I'm sure your room was tore up, but that's a good mess.
