Enjoy the ride

Today I have been invited to be guest designer for The paper variety - thanks girls I am honoured x

Their challenge theme this week isto create a travel or transportation themed paper project.

I wanted to use this fab stamp that I won from Bows and berries a while ago and knew that I had to go CAS style so that my stamp stayed the star !

I used my bigshot to diecut a label then ran it through again with a smaller label to emboss the frame. I also embossed the lower kraft layer with my swiss dots folder.

I had originally envisioned a big red bow around the top fold of the card but it was just too much so I settled for a little ribbon tab to just add a little more interest - do ya like it ?

I am so pleased that I chose red as my accent colour - I love the "pop" - what d' ya think ?

I hope you will join in and play along with the paper variety challenge this week - hop over and check out the fantastic DT creations you will not be disapointed I promise x

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Challenge up your life - No patterned paper
Crazy 4 challenges - Bingo (embossing/die cuts/ribbon)
More than favors - wacky wednesdsay - travel
Papertake weekly challenge - Dies to die for
Woodware - Try a new technique (embossing with my nesties)

Thanks for visiting me today, have a good one x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
