Sentimental Journey II

Today's card uses the new Sentimental Journey stamp set, the Travel Journal Designer Paper from the Summer Mini Catalog as well as a couple of handsome Circle Brads.  Tt was made for the Blogger's Challenge #155 this past Friday, which was a sketch. 
I distressed every edge of the cardstock and designer paper with the Distresser Tool from the Cutter Kit to reflect the vintage feel of the stamp effect.  The card base is Kraft (soon to be known as  Crumb Cake) layered with Night of Navy.  I used four different patterns from the Travel Journal Designer Paper; isn't it great how they all make coordination easy?!  Pumpkin Pie cardstock was also used for layering and the punched arrow in the upper left.

The car was stamped on Kraft, cut out and mounted with Dimensionals onto the "map" DSP, which also features two of the smaller Circle Brads from the package.

Here is the Blogger's Challenge Sketch which we were to use today.  You may check out the other Blogger's Challengers by clicking here to go to a list of those who participate.
