I'm in travel mode lately! The weather is getting warmer and I'm starting to think of vacation. The kids will be out of school really soon - they're both in college so they'll be out really early - probably in only a few weeks.
I like working with a sketch because it takes some of the guess work out of a design.  Since this one had four little boxes I needed to fill up it was just a matter of figuring out what set would work best.  There are lots of images that would be great for this sketch - I selected some clean graphic travel images from Wanderlust

All of the images fit perfectly on the Zig Zag Stitched Circles including a stamped sentiment.  The airplane was cropped to fit.  The partial image helps capture the flight and I think it worked great.

I added a sprinkle of colorful enamel dots - they shine like candy.  The repeated circles in the pattern paper, die cut images and enamel dots look great together. 
To fill up some of the open area below the circles I added some Twinery Solid Natural Twine wrapped around the card 3 times and finished with a little bow.   The neutral color keeps your focus on the bright circle images.

Want to see what the rest of the team made?  Just click on their names below!  I hope you'll join us at Sugar Pea Designs Challenge Blog!
