Loverly London!

I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Vintage Challenge. The theme is travel and my favorite city in the world to travel to is London. I love it so much I'm including some pics of me there. The last time went was summer 2009 and I hope to get back in summer 2013 - I think 2012 will be too busy with the Olympics! 

The background map stamp is a Studio Calico & Hero Arts exclusive stamp from the Studio Calico KOM. The other stamps are from Artistic Outpost. I used three different distress inks and I was going to do the Union Jack in blue and red, but after I did the rest of the card I decided to keep it relatively monochromatic. So here's another try for me at making a "vintagey" card. Thanks for taking a look!!

1. Card stock - Whisper White (Stampin Up)
2. Stamps - Map (Studio Calico & Hero Arts) Loverly London, London Underground (Artistic Outpost)
3. Distress Inks - Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen (Tim Holtz - Ranger)
