Vintage travel collage

Hello! The challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week is "Vintage Travel." I will also post my card for the OWH Midweek Throwdown, . The challenge is "Get your kraft on!" and all I saw was "kraft" and not the rest of the challenge which is "and one or two other colors"! My card has several colors but I decided to post it for the MWT anyway!
This cool vintage car image is from Digital Two for Tuesday I printed it on Kraft paper and lightly colored it with Copics to make it look like the beautiful red rocks of Arizona. The piece from a vintage travel poster was already colored (I Googled "free vintage travel images".) I've had these travel stickers forever; I think they came in a Die Cuts With A View scrapbooking kit. I'm very happy to have a good reason to use them! The bg map paper is from from a handy little paper pad that I lost the cover to. I think it's Me & My Big Ideas and I've used it a LOT. I'll try to find the name of it from an earlier card because I want to get another one if I can. I couldn't resist adding the bright red-orange pop of color of this yummy Bo Bunny Liberty Collection brad. I took a risk placing it there, but it reminds me of the setting sun. I also love the Primitive Star brads from Creative Impressions. The cream colored star seemed like a nice addition to my desert theme! I'll have my laptop with me, but I won't be posting any cards for just over a week because I'm going first to Ocean City, MD, and then to my niece's wedding in Charlottesville. I'm taking a bunch of digis & stamped images to color. Thanks for stopping by!
