travel tag ( tag swap )

This is my trial travel tag that I just finished for my tag swap. I was a bit worried about this theme because it isnt a subject that really strikes me. However, I am very proud of how these turned out . I started out with the postcard template...from 7gypsies http://www.sevengypsies.com/store/customer/home.php
I wrote a little hand written message in pencil ( so that it didnt stand out too much ) message says : Missing you a Ton! Wish you were here! Will call upon return ...Love me
I used a glitter rub on ...by lil davis designs http://www.lildavisdesigns.com/
I chalked the edges with brown . I tore the edges of the little luggage, car, and camera that i got from my scrap calendar http://www.amazon.com/Easy-Scrapbooking-Crop-Day-Day/dp/1579393373/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1201056609&sr=8-1
Then I hand stitched around the edge with blue embroidery floss . The postcard already had a hole punched in the corner so I put a brown eyelet in it and put a little ribbon through. I finished it all off by matting it all with a darker cardboard brown.
