Ride of Your Life

One of my favourite things in life is rollercoaster rides.  Many years ago, when my brother and I visited Orlando, we'd hop on every ride in all the theme parks we visited.  It was one of our most memorable trips together.  So you can imagine how excited I was to see this stamp set from The Craft's Meow called "Life is a Carnival" and better still, to have won the set.  So cool!!

The above card was created with this sketch at TCM's blog:
I stamped the various images onto a ledger patterned paper and coloured them with some copic markers (using lighter colours).  I used the ticket stamp as a border strip and the sentiment frame was from Timeless Tags.

Thanks for visiting and have a Lovely day!

When I read the caption "Ride of Your Life", my thought was that of a girl in a roller coaster. On further reading, my thoughts were confirmed when you mentioned that you and your brother love roller coaster rides :)

Kary, love the idea with the ledger paper. I just bought a 100 page journal type book for $1 at my LSS...on sale...thinking that the pages would make a fab bg on a card! And here you are way ahead of me.
