Let the Adventure Begin

Wow, is it really the end of 2016 already?!? So much has happened this year that it seems to have flown by for me. I'm looking forward to more adventures in 2017, aren't you?

Today I made this card in honor of one of those new adventures. You may not know that I joined Fun Stampers Journey 2 months ago and I am loving it! You can find my website here. The catalog is chock full of 316 pages of goodies, plus there are 4 mini catalogs throughout the year. Thank you, Richard Garay, CEO & founder of FSJ, for this amazing company! 

The image and sentiment on my card are from the ATS Begin Adventure, AT-0194. The ATS stamp sets are all a great price point and the perfect way to start your FSJ collection. I stamped with Black Licorice ink, IP-0009, onto Whip Cream card stock, CS-0040. The edges were sponged with Beach Ball ink, IP-0047. 

My card base is also Whip Cream card stock, to which I adhered a layer of Beach Ball card stock, CS-0088. The strip of cloud paper is from the Magical Journey Prints, PP-0038. The Magical Journey Collection debuted in the Oct-Dec 2016 Mini Trends Catalog, and I am head over heals in love with the entire collection! The collection is full of Walt Disney quotes and is delightful. The pattern paper and stamped panel were adhered with Journey Foam Squares, AD-0085. Richard's motto is, "When in doubt - pop it out!" That always adds just the right extra touch, don't you agree?

I used the sketch from the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #268, so I will enter my card there. I am also entering it at Time Out Challenges #73 , where the Inspired by Words challenge is -  
'With each sunrise we are given a chance for a new beginning'. At the Simon's Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge it's 'Anything Goes", so I'll add it there, also.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my card today. It's been far too long! My wish is for everyone to have a wonderful New Year! Enjoy!
