Around the world

My friend caught me today with a desperation in her eyes, screaming 'Ania, I need a card for 18th B'day NOW'. OK, for tomorrow... I don't like to craft like I was working in a fire-brigade, but she looked really serious. So here's the card for 18 year old boy, who's keen on travelling:
I used everything I have connecting with travel: ticket, stamps, map, balloon...
The card has been made according to Tuesday Morning Sketches again (I've chosen the bottom right one):
The digi is from MELONHEADZ and it's HERE. I've colored it with watercolors. I also stamped the background with FISKARS stamps, TRAVEL set.
And here's the recycled part: an old dictionary:
OK, I know, it's not nice to destroy books, but I really like using the old fashioned text pages. Can I? Please...? The balloon is from a vintage collage I bought at latest crafting bazaar in my town.
Anyone for around the world tour?

Oh man! I hate working like that too but you did an awesome job! I always find it difficult to do a card for a man especially an 18 yr old. I love the old print! Great job and thank you for joining us at V's Sweet Challenge.

Your card is spectacular!!! I love all the vintage elements paired with the bright, fun image. I feel the same way about cutting up books, but bought an old dictionary at a library sale, just for crafting, so I don't feel too bad about it. Thanks for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
