Reverse Confetti #16 SFYTT - Wherever You Go

The weather is beautiful today and keeps calling me outside.  Not too hot.. not too cold.   Just right LOL!!!  I'm thinking I need to enjoy the sunshine while I can.  The nights are getting cold and I know fall is upon us.   If only there weren't so many mosquito's!  They even attack in the sunshine!!  They are really bad this year.  The dog seems safe from them with her thick fur coat - me?  not so much!! LOL!!

I hope you are enjoying your day.  Maybe you have some time to play?  Today I'm playing along with Reverse Confetti #16 - Sketch For You To Try.  You know I'm a sketch sort of gal and this one is hard to pass up for me.  I love the new images with coordinating dies, and seriously?  A chance to win $20 off my next order.  Yep! That would be sweet!!  I love mixing different colors and patterns of paper and a sketch always makes it easier for me.   I switched up the stripes in the background and turned them into banners, and added some extra embellishments.  

I made a sort of "going away" card. I have so many friends with kids heading off to college this year.  I'm so lucky mine are commuting to school everyday.  It must be exciting and heart breaking all at the same time. 
I thought the little car looked like it was "floating" inside the circle die cut, so I free cut some hills for a "road" and anchored it down. 
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a beautiful day!  Enjoy the sunshine!!

What a great way to mix and match all those pretty pattern papers. And, I love the way you added hills to ground your cute car.
