Wishing You an Adventurous Journey

Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member, Yvonne Spikman, was so clever to use the boater from the kayak stamp with the rowboat from the Adventurous Journey stamp set and diorama die cuts for the water! I used her general design with a bit of creative liberty to make this card design my own. Sometimes the most relaxing card making comes from re-creating something beautiful someone else made.
