The Paper Shelter Challenge #164 Travel and Transportation

It's time for Team B to host a challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge blog this week and the theme is

Travel and Transportation

We would like to see your cards or projects inspired by a country you have visited or would like to visit or use a travel theme or use some sort of transportation such as a car or aeroplane. The Paper Shelter has heaps of fantastic images for this challenge - you'll be spoilt for choice!

Here are a few ideas to get you started...You could use Snake Charmer for a trip to India, Bon Voyage for a travel theme or My Racing Car for a transportation theme.

I decided to go for a Chinese themed card as I have always wanted to go to China and maybe one day in the far distant future I will get there. For this theme I used the beautiful My Fantasy Pet digi with the matching background paper too.


Lots of gorgeous greens, reddy-oranges and gold on this one. Not  colour combo I would usually choose but I love how it came out! The pearlescent card is really hard to photograph though as it's just so shiny!
