On the Road! - Shaped Cards at Crafting with Dragonflies

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies! We're focusing on Shaped Cards, so I made this fun road-trip card featuring an image from one of our sponsors, MilkCoffee:


The MilkCoffee digi stamp was colored with Copics and paper-pieced. It's on an Action Wobble, so it bounces down the road!

My parents are going on a trip to South Africa next month, so I wanted the road sign to reflect that. The sign, road, and card bases were designed in SCAL and cut on my Silhouette. I embossed and sanded the road.

Inspiration/Challenges:
Catered Crop: Safe Travels
Die Cut Divas: Let's Emboss it + die cut
Glitter n Sparkle: Add a Sentiment
MilkCoffee Challenge: Embossing
Through the Purple Haze: Use a Digi

Update: This was one of the Winning Recipes for Catered Crop's Safe Travels Challenge. Wow!

Thank you for visiting,and hope you'll join us at Crafting with Dragonflies,
