Twisted Tuesday Challenge: Vacation!

Hello! I am excited to share that I am guest designing this week for the Twisted Tuesday Challenge!  This week's challenge is to make a card using the word vacation as inspiration. The twist-keep it simple! I love a good CAS card, so this was perfect for me.
As some of you know, we bought a camper last year, so I decided to pull out this Unity oldie but goodie stamp for my card.  I used text from an old book in the background, and copics to color my image.  I sponged Antique Linen distress ink over all of my paper edges, and added a loopy baker's twine bow and heart button.
I thought about making a couple more of these cards and creating "travel" goodie bags for my boys to take with them on our first trip of the year.  Our trips are usually just weekend trips. I can not imagine going on a trip for longer than that, but maybe we will try it someday! :)

I hope you get a chance to join the Twisted Tuesday Challenge!
Thanks for stopping by,

Emily

Of course, I just LOVE this, Emily!! We are getting our little pop-up camper out this weekend for the first time this season. I wish it were for a trip, but we have some maintenance to do. But it will be good to get it all aired out, too!! I love this stamp--one of my favorites from Unity!
