The Card Concept: Daring to Dream

 It's time for another challenge from The Card Concept. It's Daring to Dream and includes this graphic. 

I love this graphic.  It manages to be detailed and vintage - yet very fresh.  Obviously I liked the globes.  I was also inspired by the stacks of suitcases and books to create my stacked shiplap background.  (I originally cut them in various browns like the suitcases, but I just couldn't get the Clean and Simple look I was going for with the browns.)

The shiplap panels do have woodgrain on them.  I also used an embossing folder to add some woodgrain to the globe stand. The golden yellow heart was inspired by the photo too.  I had red cardstock out, but noticed that one little golden yellow book in the stack on the floor. It stood out to me so I thought my heart would also stand out.

My original intent was to go with the theme of Daring to Dream.  The stamp set that coordinates with those globe has stamps like "adventure awaits". That would be good for graduation but then I realized that for the first time in a VERY long time, I don't know anyone graduating this year.  (I used to feel like I made as many graduation cards as Christmas between church youth, the lacrosse team that my husband coached and family friends).  I do need Valentines Cards for my 20+ year old sons - and this seemed just right!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at The Card Concept - I look forward to see what inspired everybody!
