  9. This is beautiful Karen. Thanks for joining the Things With Wheels challenge at Incy Wincy Designs this week.

  10. What a fabulous card with so many clever details! I love the vintage feel and thought it was so creative of you to use the same Enchanted stamp twice, but in different colors and cut in different shapes. I didn't even realize it was the same stamp until I looked closer. That's a great trick that I will have to try myself! Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing this beautiful card with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  11. I love this card. I am a fan of vintage and maps. This card is wonderful. I love the stamps and the colors. Great job!
