Papercraft Star ... Maps

Hi ... I'm back with you today to share my DT project for this week's challenge at Papercraft Star
Our challenge this week is "Maps"


I love this inspiration photo ... it reminds me of the fabric my sweet friend Linda sent me and I was going to cut into it and make something for this challenge ... but somehow I ended up going down a different route 


I had this thing in my head ... like no matter where you are ... you are always in my heart
Well I just had to follow it through and raided my odds and ends and came up with this card


I downloaded a map from the internet for one layer of the heart but the map paper on my background is from my supplies ... I have no idea where it came from ... I have unused papers from years ago!
The blue dot paper is by Grace Taylor ... the beige dot paper is by Chrissy W ... Tag is  K&Co


I have a huge box of chipboard pieces that I bought in a charity shop ... they had been donated by QVC and only cost about £1.50 so I used a frame and cut a heart from another colour co ordinating piece and computer generated the sentiment ... everything else is from my left over bits and pieces

The DT have some lovely projects over on the Papercraft Star blog and Anitra is the Featured designer this week showcasing papers from our sponsor THATB ... 

We'd love to see your creations ... so I hope you'll come and join us

Have a beautiful day
Till soon

What a fabulous card! As a geographer by trade I love maps and your take on the challenge is truly special! It also reminds me of "Travelling Prayer" by Billy Joel where he sings "... wherever we're together that's my home..."

I can feel so much from this card, Ros, it seems a deep longing to see someone special. My card came from that same "place". You always seem to use blue like no one else can, gorgeous ! Hugs ! -J-
