Road Trip Layout

Today I have another layout to share which was created using Hello Kitty Greetings, Hello Kitty Font and Letter Envy cartridges.  The car, luggage, butterflies and flowers were cut from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge.  The title was cut from the Hello Kitty Font cartridge and the arrows were cut from Letter Envy.
To break up the patterned background, I added a solid green piece of card stock in the center of the layout which has a border punched with the Fiskars Effervescence border punch.
I used two layers of card stock for the photo mats and layered a strip of patterned card stock from my scraps on top of the photo mats.  They were finished off with some ribbon.
All of the die cuts were popped up on foam for added dimension and embellished with faux stitching and some doodling with my white gel pen.  A little bit of bling was added to the flowers and butterflies.
I used some Halloween Orange Licorice Trendy Twine to accent the luggage pieces and the Hello Kitty car.  The orange and black twine added the perfect accent to the die cuts.
