Graphic 45 Summer Collections - World's Fair

Welcome to Graphic 45 Summer 2015 Release Sneak Peeks! Today, I am sharing a card I made with the NEW World's Fair Collection!

I have such a fascination with the World's Fair! I have read a number of stories set during the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 (also known as the Colombian Exposition), and I always think of how exciting it must have been for the folks who had a chance to visit. (And how expensive and frustrating it may have been for the host cities!) 

I have pestered Graphic 45 for years to come out with a World's Fair collection! I am so happy to see that Diane has designed one that is so fabulous! The blue and orange color palette is just stunning!

This card is 5" x 6" and is done in my favorite layered, grunge style! 

With lots of flowers! And ribbon! I love some plaid ribbon. I added some of the fabulous Graphic 45 keys as well.

The card is very layered, but how can you use just one piece of this fantastic paper?! 

I decorated the inside. I just need to get my hands on the NEW stamps in order to stamp something on the inside!

Thanks for looking. I will be sharing more release projects during the remainder of August and into September!
