Get Outta Town is a really fun set filled with unique images. I've always loved the look of stacked suitcases ever since I discovered these pretty things here...



So naturally, I fell in love with this image of stacked suitcases and used it as the focus of my card. The hibiscus flowers are part of the set too. Sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler.



Images were all stamped and cut out. I did some selective coloring with Copic markers and a white gel pen and added some shine with some Stickles to finish it off.

The background is embossed with Lifestyle Craft's Bloom embossing folder (super pretty and deep impressions! Coupon code SUGAR gets you 20% off your entire purchase. Just sayin' ;)

I think this card is suitable for a newlywed couple -- a send off to their honeymoon, yes?
