All Roads Lead To You


I'm determined not to miss anymore deadlines so I'm posting this card for the Map to Your Heart Challenge in the Moxie Fab World 3 days ahead!  Whoop whoop!  I had an extra copy of the Bermuda Yellow Pages Book of Maps on hand so I cut some arrows out of it and matted them on grey cardstock.  I used PTI's Linen and Canvas impression plate on the turquoise cardstock for some texture.  The sentiment is computer generated and the heart is a PTI die.  I have one sheet of Thickers and have been hoarding them for ages but this is the year of giving my supplies their moments to shine so I finally broke them out.  Love the dimension they add!

Ahh, the linen impression plate. I swear you will never be able to put it down. It really adds such a great touch to this fun card!

Hooray for Thickers! I can totally understand your reasoning for hoarding them since I do the same thing. I force myself to use them because it'd be an excuse to buy more when the original package is used up. :)
