Taking the scenic route

Hello and welcome September - my favourite month, I love late summer, early autumn here in the UK . Hopefully the weather is good today - as I write this in advance - I realise that on the 1st September I will be at a friend's wedding. 

And it's a busy day here at Addicted to Art too - if you missed my first post of the day - I am September's guest designer at That's Crafty - you can find it here.

Being the 1st of the month we introduce a new challenge at Country View Crafts - the theme being Travel. 

My card originated as a journal page with texture paste and finger painting with paper artsy fresco paints - followed my some stamping. I took some of the page and stamped the greeting and bird and cut them out. I added some chevrons to embellish and a little doodling with my white pen.
