Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: May 1-Travel On

Hi there!
I have the privilege and honor of guest designing for Curtain Call!  What a fun inspiration photo!  I love to travel!  So, where would you travel or what is your favorite travel spot?  There are so many beautiful places to see!  Last summer we traveled to California to a most gorgeous divine place...Yosemite...
There is nothing like being outdoors enjoying the beauty of nature to help calm the soul!
Anyways, I need to show you my card that I made for the challenge.  And, here it is...
For my card,  I started with a blue card base and added orange and fun paper from Imaginisce.  I used a Heidi Swapp frame to hold the shaker elements of hearts and beads.  The camera and plane is from Close to My Heart.  Glossy Accents was added to the plane for dimension.  The wood heart, circle and banner are from SU.  The heart was colored with a Tim Holtz distress marker.  The alphas are from Tim Holtz, also.  I hope you join the fun challenge this week!  And, let me know what your favorite travel spot is!:-)  Thanks so much for viewing my shaker card today!  Have a great weekend!
