"This week our destination is Aurora, Colorado. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Laura. Laura was brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter Susie (paperpunchscissors). Laura was crossing light rail tracks while listening to music through ear buds. She stopped and waited for a train to pass not hearing the train approaching from the opposite side. She was hit by the train. She sustained a traumatic brain injury, subsequently suffered a stroke and pneumonia.
When Laura was growing up she went on cruises with her parents and grandparents. Laura's first cousins came along too. All girly-girls to the core, they loved to dress up and attend parties."
I used a digital stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps --- Fashionably French --- which I hope Laura will like. The dress is "tres chic" --- of course, that's stamped beside it, just to make sure you know :)
The picture of the card doesn't do it justice. I have layered a vellum dress overtop of the stamped one, and it definitely adds a lot of visual interest (which is not captured in the photo).
