A Sister in Australia

I never before had a reason to make an "I Miss You" card until now. My sister is studying in Australia and will be gone for one whole year. It's much too expensive to come home even once. I had a bunch of supplies on my desk and these papers seemed to hit it off, so I married them to this card! Stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. See that velvet ribbon - it used to be cream coloured. ;)

TIP: BUY cream velvet ribbon from Maya Road and spray it with Shimmerz Spritz or Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to get the colour you want. I'm not sure I need to buy ribbon again!

Cardstock: Bazzill (Kraft)
Paper: Bo Bunny, KaiserCraft
Spray: Shimmerz Spritz, and Tattered Angels
Ribbon: Maya Road
Ink: Tsukineko, Ranger
Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms
Brads: Making Memories
Die Cut Journal: 7 Gypsies

I had a sister who spent a year in Australia as well. Such a long time but such an awesome experience! Love your card and I am sure your sister will too!
