Adventure Awaits for Freshly Made Sketches

I know that Adventure Awaits seems to be primarily a masculine stamp set, but if you choose a different colour scheme and different DSP, you can totally make it a more feminine design. I wanted to make a chalkboard effect card with the new Color Box Chalk inks and the Chalkboard Paper in the Occasions Catalogue and combine it with the Something Borrowed series of DSP for my retreat make & takes. While looking for a good "chalkboard effect" stamp set, Adventure Awaits caught my eye for the great fonts, and I decided to use it!

I also used the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #171 sketch for my layout:

Here's a closer look:

And while we're talking about curiosity, I just wanted to highlight an issue to do with mental health! Yesterday was Bell's "Let's Talk Day"!  People shared texts, Facebook photos and tweets in order to raise money and awareness for mental health issues.  People I'm close to face mental health problems on a daily basis, and I also struggle with mild anxiety and depression. It's so important to break the silence and the stigma surrounding mental illness.  It is an illness, not a weakness! Please do your part to talk about mental health, not hide it under a blanket of shame!
