Who said designing is all about connecting dots? An encouragement theme, some gingham and a stamp set of traffic signs and alphabets by Gel∙à∙tins, I came up with this card: Nina yang gelatins the road goes ever on I used the B sides of Farm Field Stripe Paper, Cherry Pie Paper and Sweet Floral Paper from Country Charm collection by GCD Studios. I used a lollypop stick and two brads to hold the sign. I wanted to keep the background soft so that the road sign and the car silhouette can pop.  Polka dots would have been too sweet for the theme but ginghams were just perfect! Nina yang gelatins the road goes ever on closeup I hand drawn the scene on some scrap and used it as a template to cut my patterned paper. The wavy edge of the green piece (grass or mountain?) is punched out with a lucky 8 punch with settings set to cut the Outer Cut only :) Nina yang hand drawn scene Life is a journey and the road goes ever on. Enjoy the ride, everyone! :)
