Bon Voyage!

Relatives of ours are emmigrating to France in a couple of weeks; the recession hit them badly and they have decided to start afresh where at least the sun shines :-) Who blames them??!
I made this card using my new 8x8" Kraft cardstock, so it is a rather large card! Vintage Travel papers; both acrylic and digital stamps were used; I paper pieced the suitcases with old newspaper and all edges are distressed with Tim Holtz inks.
Onto some challenges:
Pear Tree Designs - Stamped images (Eiffel Tower, Letter)
Craft Us Crazy - Something new (my new 8x8" kraft cards)
Crafts and Me - Anything goes + kraft
A Spoon full of Sugar - Anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Have a nice weekend!
