It's A Quirky old World

The New Challenge has started over on
(a wee bit late... but you don't want to hear how I messed up my card do you?! No!) This fortnight's Challenge was set by Caro, and she has chosen...
'Around the World!'
Caro says, feel free to interpret this in anyway you, Bon Voyage, anything from a different country etc and seeing it's coming up to Christmas we don't mind seeing a few penguins or polar bears! (In my case, it's usually pink elephants!)
We all look forward to seeing what you come up with. Don't forget this is a mixed media challenge, so any craft project can be submitted as long as it can be interpreted as... Around The World!
In a way, I'm quite glad I messed up my first card, because if I hadn't, I wouldn't've made this one! And this one is sooo much better! All the papers I've used are by Kiss This Designs, which I downloaded as a freebie last year. The image of course comes from the fabulous Mo Mannings I used two Woodward punches to make the 'Luck' sign, which I fixed onto acetate just to give it a bit more body. I've used Promaker to colour and dusted loads of micro fine glitter wherever it would stick...but I'm now thinking I might add a bit more Stickles Glitter too!
