Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate cards

 Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate Wedding Card made for someone special coming up this month.      
Graphic 45 Time to Celebrate Birthday card as well. Inked with green on the top part and brown on the bottom, all around all the edges. And a big Green silk ribbon from May Arts Ribbon. Love that yummy color, don't you!! So glad to get my hands on this collection and hoping they enjoy it too!
This bottom card reminds of the face on the inspiration photo of the woman staring start at the illustrator and with a demure, straight faced look. Funny how things hit me!!

Colosseum Underground, Rome, Italy Layout

When I was anticipating traveling to Rome, Italy, I wanted to see more than just the average tourist. It was apparent that there were many tours of the Colosseum in Rome, but only one Underground Tour and you must book it prior and by phone. This part is very important because other agencies will resell the tix and cost you over one hundred more! This tour features the dungeons, and other things as well as your tour of the Colosseum itself, and a pass to do the Forum on your own.  I hope you will try and go if you ever travel to Rome. Here is a Tripadvisor advisory of how to book the Underground Tour.  The large picture on the left page is of us next to those dungeons! Pretty cool, eh?  This was a trip of a lifetime taken in 2014!
The layout: Authentique Devotion papers, Petaloo flowers sprayed darker to match papers, and various cardstocks.  The title is cut from on Cricut Explore using the Destination cartridge. I then embossed it using a Versamark pad, and Bronze Zing embossing powder.  I used my Score Pal to crease the cardstock to make it a perfect fold so I could include more pics.  Also, I popped up a vintage sticker from my stash after mounting it to cardstock.
I really enjoy hearing your comments so please leave them.
