Daring Cardmakers - 'Suitcase'

It's Friday! It's time for another Daring Cardmakers card. It was the turn of Rein this week who has set the following dare:

it's Rein here this week and my dare is
"SUITCASE"
I'd like you to use a suitcase in any way you like on your card.
It could be what you put in your suitcase when you're off travelling, or you could incorporate any sort of suitcase; old, new, shiny or battered into your design.

And this is what I've come up with this week...........

Funny story actually I made this card this morning about 15mins ago because I've been so busy this week with so many things rushing through my head I forgot it was Friday! Who forgets it's Friday?! I think I need a holiday! lol I grabbed my leftovers of For The Record by Echo Park because I knew I had a suitcase sticker on there so that was good to go. There's a scrap of October Afternoon paper on there too ( the crossword one). I wanted it to look more grungy so I went for a spattering of white ink, (Mr Huey Calico White). The camera is a stamp - I thought it went well with the whole travely themed birthday card. The happy bit is Thickers - got some bargain ones in the Sarahs Cards sale, these little size ones are fab for cards.
Well if you'd like to play along with this weeks dare get yourself over to Daring Cardmakers and give it a go! www.daringcardmakers.blogspot.com
