Card: Getaway

When our dear friends celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary (see their card here) they commemorated the occasion with a trip to Florida.  I sent them this card to wish them a "bon voyage!"  I used modeling paste to make the stars - I colored it with red acrylic paint.  This card is being linked to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is "Paste."

I just have to say, this card is not only AWESOME cause it matched the journal I made for our anniversary trip PERFECTLY, but the card is just in and of itself...ROCKSTAR!!! Those stars are so COOL!!! Every element that you used is so awesome!! I love that you used that car since we drove for our trip!! So cool!! And of course I popped this baby right in that journal, and it looks soooo amazing!!!
