Riley's Dream Vacation!

Hello, I made this for the colour challenge CC209, the colours are rose red, always artichoke and black. I also made this for my Husband. He wanted a card to give to a client that likes going to RV shows, so trailer Riley was perfect!

The card base is black, with a layer of rose red. The next layer is what & I sponged a sky, which you can't see too well, with yellow & blues. The tree line was made with the new EK alpine trail edge punch. I used 2 shades of green sponged the edges & off set them. I tried to make the appearance of hills by sponging over a circle, but most of it's covered by the vehicles.

I coloured the Riley, van & trailer with prismacolour pencils & oms. Both heads are popped up. I also used a gelly roll pen for the silver on the vehicles. The faux roadway was made by tearing a piece of creamy caramel, stamping it with the itty bitty bg's and creamy caramel & close to cocoa, and the edges are sponged.

The metal sentiment is from the $ store. I just backed it with some ovals and added the gingham ribbon.

I hope she likes it!
