Voyage of Discovery

*************************************************************
I hope everyone's having a great day!  Here in Arkansas it's cold, rainy, and icy.  We were out of school today due to the impending ice storm, and now all of the trees (as well as many power lines!) are COVERED in ice!  I took advantage of the day off to head upstairs to my craft room and came up with this gem of a card:


All in all, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!  My materials list:  ribbon (from my stash), gold mesh (from my stash), Michael's paper flowers, My Mind's Eye Six by Six All Spice cardstock paper, Ranger Archival Ink in coffee, and Cloud 9 Design stamp (Simple Thoughts--Travel).

The card is my week eight card for Scrappin' 'n' Chattin's 52 Week Card Challenge and also works for SnC's rounded corners challenge for February.  I'm entering this for the following challenges:
~Week 147 at City Crafter Challenge Blog
~Crafting by Designs
~Challenge #159 at Fab 'n' Funky Challenges
~Week #49 at Midweek Magnolias
~Challenge #115 at Pennys Paper-Crafty Challenges
~Bingo Challenge at Scrap-Creations (glitter, flowers, ribbon)
I was also going to enter at Crafty Catz, but I missed the deadline!

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!  It's Daytona 500 weekend, and we're ready for NASCAR season at my house.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for the All Racing Blog Hop, and stop over at this post on my blog to leave a suggestion for a title for the new travel/food/photography blog I'm starting (blog candy at this one!!!).  Happy scrapping, everyone!
