Vintage Travel



'Vintage Travel', is our new theme this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over for the details and see what we have all been making.
I hope you will join our challenge.

When I saw this theme, I had a number of ideas, cycles, cars, balloons, but eventually decided on this old bus.
The stamp of the bus,  is from the transport Collection by Stamps Away. The ticket is a Stampers Anonymous stamp. Papers came from my stash.
 One of the layers is embossed with clocks, you can just about see them, buses  never seem to be on time where I live.
All the colouring is Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink.

I will also be entering this card at -
