Route 66

My Sherri Crafts challenge this week has the theme of  "Lets Take a Trip" .  Great summer time theme. When I saw the them of the challenge I thought of the Kenny K. digital image I had in my collection.  Thought it would make a good image for this challenge.  

I had this pack of travel papers in my stash that were perfect for this card. The Route 66 sign is a free digital from Vintage Printables. I coloured my image with my Copic Markers and added a few sentiments to complete my card. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a creative day.
