Live Your Adventure

This card is for someone who will be moving to the other side of the world after graduating with her PhD.  Can't get much more adventurous than that, huh.  I tried to capture her sweet, wholesome nature in paper and know the honeycomb quilted look is right up her alley.

I was really smitten by the latest CASE Study by Shari Carroll--there's lots going on but still a clear focus.  I tend to lean CAS so this one presented a fun way to maintain that and still add in some bits I perhaps wouldn't normally.

The Details:  PTI kraft cardstock and honeycomb die, Speckletone Madero Beach White 80# coverstock, My Mind's Eye Away We Go 6x6 designer papers and The Sweetest Thing layered sticker, WPlus9 Fanciful Feathers Die, Tim Holtz Distress Walnut Stain Ink, vellum, hemp twine

I'm entering this in Virginia's View Challenge #5 Die Cuts, CASE Study #198, Stampin' Royalty #235 Keep It Simple, and Paper Crafting Challenges #13 Anything Goes
