Crafty Calendar Challenge DT - Around the World

We have our very first sketch for you at Crafty Calendar Challenge along with our theme for this month which is "around the world". It is a sad day for us at the Crafty Calendar Challenge though as the lovely Georgia, founder of the challenge is having to step down to concentrate on her exams. All the very best of look Georgia and you will be greatly missed! Back to my card, and again the Magnolia summer kit came in handy!! The papers are by K&Co, distressed with vintage photo distress ink and stickled.
I have coloured Tilda with copics and added glossy accents to the porthole.

My "luggage lable" was recycled from some jeans and I have used a Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamp set for the Rome sticker. I also added a flower from Tim Holtz.
The shrink plastic Eiffel Tower charm was made using another stamp from the Simon Says Stamp exclusive kit. I have tied it to some jute string from my stash. The border is cut with a Tim Holtz on the edge die and the lace is from my stash. The sentiment I have hand written with a white gel pen onto some of the waste lable cut with a tag die.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this month at Crafty Calendar Challenge! The rest of the team have created some gorgeous inspiration for you too! Thanks for looking! x
