In the Highway of Life You Carry the Gift


The challenge this week at Bitten by the Bug (BBTB) is to make a card using the Highway Sign from the Cricut Going Places cartridge. Regina did it again, another great challenge! I had these scraps sitting on my desk from my previous TCP card (a color challenge) - the blue DCWV PP had a glitter swirl that caught my eye and I had to do something with it.

So continuing to use my scraps, I made this card for my sister. She is going through some hurdles in life right now and this is reminder that in the highway of life she carries the gift of those who love her and always want to see her succeed in life :) ...

The highway sign cut by my darling Cricut made a perfect frame for this A MUSE cute little VW bug stamp; yellow is appropriate because my sister use to have a yellow car, we dubbed it the banana boat. Ahh... memories. The gift on top of it was just too perfect! :) I used the wavy dotted punch to show how the road of life is full of up and downs :) And this of course will be sent with love.

The PP, the shape of the card and the ribbon is very much like a typical A MUSE card; so overall this card came together just right :) ... (thanks Tracy for the many splendid classes, I have learned A LOT!)

Supplies:
Car with gift - A MUSE Simple Thoughts
"with love" - A MUSE Simple Thoughts
Highway Sign- cut at 2 3/8'' using Going Places cartridge
A MUSE gems
EK Dotted Wave edge punch
PP is DCWV Sweet Stack and Spring 2007 Stack

Super creative! I would have chosen traditional "road sign" colors -- but you have done this in soft tones and it looks amazing!
