Sentimental Journey

I just had to start getting my mini catalog sets inked up!  They have been begging to be inked for a while now. Here's the first of my sets to get inked.... 

I totally love this card.  When I was first starting to create this, I was having such a tough time creating it. I stumbled many times before this design came together.  Pretty pleased with myself and my persistence in trying to get it together.  My favorite part about this card is the compass.  Take a look: 

Yup!!  Thats a brad!  Its the backside of a brad!!  Haha! I thought that was pretty clever. It looks pretty cool too.  The length of the brad legs was perfect.  Now, if only I made the compass turn north whichever way I moved, then THAT would have just been OUTTA THIS WORLD!!! 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Happy Stampin'!

  4. Clever use of the brad. The layout of this card is perfect for the set used.

  5. Great card! I love how you used the "back" of the brad on the compass - very smartie pants for you!!!

  6. Val this is SUCH a cute card! I"m so glad I have one of my own. ;-) I just love the colors and the layout. And the brad is just pure genius!!
