Well, my suitcase is all packed and I am ready to return to Oregon again. This time I will hopefully buy the lot, hire the contractor and have them start building! But before I leave, I HAD to finish this card for a very special BFF who is going to Italy for her birthday! We had planed to go together a few years back, but then life got in the way, lol. She wanted me to go this trip, but of course I can't because of getting my house built. But I have no doubt that I WILL make it there some day!
The stamp of the little gal is by Little Blue Button Stamps and is called "Miss Lilly Reporter". I colored her with my Copics. The background map I found online and printed it. I love the "old world" look of it. I also found the banner on line and then added the word "ciao" to it in my paint program. I cut it out and raised it and my image with pop dots. I inked the edges of the map and there we have it!
I hope I have lots of good news to tell you when I return in 10 days.
Wish me luck!
