I am reading Around The World In Eighty Days which came on my new e-reader, having heaps of books not loaded on yet. I'm surprised it's quite a good read, a favourite at the moment and giving inspiration to this birthday card using Delicious Doodles Chain + Cog Frame digi stamp with a hot air balloon image from Dover Sampler and banner from The Graphics Fairy. Embossing and Distress inking finishes off the vintage-feel.
I used: Delcious Doodles digi from Stitchy Bear, Sizzix Tim Holtz Book Cover embossing folder, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, AnnaBelle Stamps Sentimental Bluebells hb stamp, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Stormy Sky, Gathered Twigs.
