Bon Voyage!

Hi there!

Another fun theme this week at Cas-ualfridays!

                             MAPQUEST!

As lots of us travel this time of the year... I guess a map... or {GPS!} comes in very handy. I am not good using any of those. My husband always hands the map to me when he drives, and then he thinks it very funny when I turn the map around to get myself orientated!

I guess sunglasses are one of the first things I pop in my handbag when we travel, because my eyes are very light sensitive.
I tried to capture the effect of looking to the map through sunglasses, by coloring the "glas" part with a grey marker.
The sunglasses were cut with my Silhouette, and given a bit of glossy accent treatment.
Added a ticket sentiment to add to the travel feeling.
Hope you like it!

Nothing much to the sentiment... but here it is... you might want to use it! :)







Thanks for visiting... hope you have a great weekend!

So, so, so clever and cool! The sunglasses are an amazing addition and perfect for the sentiment font. Even looks like a European map???

This is simply stunning Hannelie, always so so creative you are, I love it... Me too just haven't been popping along much lately unfortunately. Just so busy with everything, but I'm the one who is losing as your cards are always so inspirational and creative. Wishing you a lovely Sunday xxx

So cool and so clever, Hannelie ... those sunglasses are awesome ... I can almost pick them up! I do the same thing with maps that you do ... they just have to be oriented properly! Anita :)

...this is what I mean when I say that you are so clever girl! Awesome idea shading the glasses!

Glad to know that I'm not the only one that turns the map to keep it orientated in the direction that we are travelling..

That was such a great idea to shade the map grey behind the sunglasses. I love the little Glossy Accents on the glasses, too. Fabulous card, as always! :) Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays.

Those glossy accents are outstanding on the glasses, as is the gray-colored area. Very effective! So glad to see you at the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
