Bon Voyage - USA

This is a card I made for a sweet girl close to our hearts - she is going to the USA end of this week and we wanted to wish her a Bon Voyage and give her some pocket money for the trip.

The Tim Holtz stamps are just perfect for the occassion and I love the blueprint sketchy look of those stamps! I used some Hero arts shadow inks to ink up the two All American colors (red royal and navy).

The inside of the card had to hold some dollars and I used the MFT gift card die for that - I stamped the star from the same Tim Holtz set twice (on the background and on the pocket) and ligned it up.

I like the look of those dollar bills tucked inside the pocket ;))

Because of the bulky card,  I decided to wrap some delicious ribbon around the card. I actually bought that ribbon in the USA (Cape Cod) a few years back - so that was very fitting, don't you think?

Now I hope she will have a wonderful trip - I know she will! USA is a great country to visit and the Americans really know how to make any guest coming to their country, feel welcome!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!
