Spectrum Noir Challenge - Travel.....

Hello my lovelies..... how was you week?
 The summer has refused to quit and is still pretty fabulous here...I for one will be sad to see it go...
 Just like the recipient of this card... its for a work colleague, she has decided to see a bit of the world now she has graduated...So, I made this card for us all to sign... she will be missed, but what an exciting adventure for her!??
 This card is also perfect for the next challenge over on the Spectrum noir challenge blog where the theme is "Travel"...

The papers are aptly called "Well Travelled " from Carta Bella, and the image is called "Thursdays Child" from Mo Manning....
she is coloured with my spectrums , here's the colours I used...

Skin: TN3,2,PP2,FS4


Coat:IG7, DR7,6,4,CR7
WEllies:PP6,5,2,BT3,1 blender

 I distressed the papers and added a few post mark stamps... I love the newspaper feel of these papers... I finished with some jute twine and a couple of charms.... The little tag says "from all of us" and is from LOTV.
I just love Mo Manning , they are always so perfect when you need just the right image...
