Magnolia Suitcase!! Fall Travels

It's my sisters birthday!! So what better way to send her my love (she lives 4hrs away) then in a traveling suitcase.. I made this little suitcase template.. and had a blast doing it.. I used 2 of the magnolia stamps... the eiffel tower stamp which I embossed with silver embossing powder, then used tim holtz distressed walnut ink to make it look "old" and the flight attendent stamp also..
Up close photo of the Eiffel Tower.. and the stitching!
Inside I created a "passport" this is folded into a little book, It has little stamps where she would have traveled etc.. so all of the family can write a little something to my sister there also..
The Flight Attendent is colored in pinks.. as well as the buckel of the bag.. I added the little white polka-dots with a white gel pen.. This was done for the Just Magnolia Challenge Think Pink

I also stitched everything down so it looked like a real suitcase.. I had a blast making this card!! I have entered it into the All That Scraps Fall/Fold Challenge.. since the handle folds up and down like a real suitcase, and I create the little folded up passport I thought it was perfect.. The Magnolia Downunder has an All Aboard Challenge.. which I thought this is perfect for too :)
