Love to travel

Okay, so another orange card on the way, when i dont really like orange too much!!
I made this card for Yvonne's guest challenge this week. I had these wonderful 'Artemio' clear stamps bought from Belgium a few months back. This challenge by Yvonne to use postage stamps was perfect moment to put these to good use. The stamps in the card are used on a magazine to create faux-stamps!
I used the sketch i recently saw at Ujjwal's blog for The prickly pear challenge, hope i have done some justice to the sketch! I am otherwise generally hopeless when it comes to sketches!

The idea for this card came when my husband booked a vacation for both of us to Edinburgh next week.Needless to say,I Love to travel. Thanks to my darling husband I am a well traveled person, Scotland will be my 11th-visited-country so far (that count includes India though :D).

I once dreamed to be visiting 30 countries and atleast 5 continents before i die.. Looks like i need to upgrade my dream! I have already visited 3 continents so far and its pretty long life i have ahead! :)

Here's another view of the card, taken at a tilted angle so you can see the 'heart' before '2' and the dull gold rings below in its true colour. Btw, do you notice the background for this card? I used a Sizzix texture plate to stamp the background & I absolutely love the effect.

Supplies -
Tim Holtz walnut stain ink, Artemio Postal Mini Clear Stamp Set, Inkadinkado Inchie stamp set, Jef Circle punch & Echo park collection - walk in the park Alpha sheet.
