You only live once

Two things made this card come together...

First I received my order from SugarPea Designs and had to use the LondonScape die right away!  Second, I saw the sketch at Fab Friday and it was perfect 😊

I used some Authentique Paper and inked up my very neglected PTI stamp sets, which I have had since they came out and this was the first time using them!

I stamped the sentiments from the City Scene Sentiments.  I then attached the LondonScape.  Finally I stamped and cut out the bus from the City Scene stamp set and mounted it on foam squares. 

Now what inspired the card to begin with?  Well my youngest daughter.  In about a month she is moving to London to Au Pere for a year and perhaps longer.  She will be doing her Sociology degree online while there.  Yes, she is the one who a couple of years ago left for Vietnam and then a working stay in Australia.  She has been home for about a year planning..... and this is her next adventure.  Before starting her job in London she will be staying with some friends and traveling around Germany for a couple of weeks! 

I just may have to write a little note in the card and tuck it in her suitcase.... we are proud of her.

Here is the sketch:
