Travel the World First Class Card---Join us for another MayzyArt Challenge!

Hi there, Crafty guys and gals!  I can't believe 2 weeks had already passed since our last MayzyArt Challenge.  So, were off for a new challenge which I hope will tap on your creativity.  The theme is "Flight of Fancy" so, if you want to know how to enter this Challenge, hop on over to MayzyArt Blog and she has all the details for you.  Meanwhile, I am featuring this Card I made to highlight that theme.  I got the lay-out inspiration for this project at Magnolia Ink magazine (No. 3, 2010, made by Claudia).  I used the Trapeze Artist (from MayzyArt Stamps) but instead of having her hanging (upside down) on a rope, I eliminated the rope (covered with a gray CS to make it look like poles instead) and made her more into a "gymnast on parallel bar" (clever, huh!).  After all, the Summer Olympics is just around the corner so, what a great way to highlight that by way of this card.  I also selected a travel theme because the Olympic participants get to travel and see many places so, hence all the travel elements (from TPC Studio--namely Travel Journey and Travel World collections) stamped in this project...There are 3 DP's here:  2 of them are from Paper Studio (Tattered and Worn Collection) and the other from K and Company.  I used several CS in the shades of Kraft, brown and orange.  I colored the image with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Sharpie markers and applied 3 kinds of Distress inks (Pumice Stone, Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain) on several elements of this project .  I stamped the flower image (from Ditto Stamps) several times and paper pieced it.  I gave it some leaves using an MS Border Punch.  I used my Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge to cut the scallop-doily and my Nesties to cut/emboss the ribbon buckles.  I incorporated 2 kinds/sizes of ribbon too: brown and orange.  And finally, I got to stitch all over the panels for a nice, polished, yet with a hint of vintage feel on this card.  I think it turned out really great.  What do you think?  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Crafty Creations featuring "Embellish It" (pearls, ribbons, flowers, punch/die-cut stuff, brads)
2.    Cardmadfairy's featuring "Girly Challenge"

The past few days, we've been hitting record breaking 100++ degrees temperature and I am not liking it much.  Every time I would enter my vehicle, after it was parked for a bit, felt like I'm going to bake inside.  But we thank the Lord Jesus because each time we call unto Him for His cloud of protection, He answers us by sending His clouds (literally) or a nice breeze to cool us off.  This is also true in all the trials we encounter in our lives.  When things seem hopeless, we call unto our Heavenly Father and He comforts us by assuring us that as we trust in Him, nothing is impossible.  It is good to have Someone you can count on in every situation of life.  I don't know how will I ever survive without Him. I love you, Jesus!
