Goodbye CHA - Hello Real World

I made a trek out to CHA! More posts later about (I promise!), but can I just say now, I loved every moment?! The best part was meeting all the amazing gals. I think I haven't been this un-composed or high-school girl-like, since...ever?

Well, I'm on the road this week, so here is a quick card I had to make with my new CHA Exclusive Papertrey Ink stamp set. What better thing to use to prompt my creative juices, than the next 
Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge?
The circles on the sketch created a hungering need to punch out circles on my top base card stock. And something needed to peek through, so a quick measurement of my circle dies and my new petals, resulted in this:

Stamps: Four of a Kind (Papertrey Ink), Victorian Fripperie (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Paper: Paper Basics Card Stock - White (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Plum Pudding (Papertrey Ink), Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Terracotta (Papertrey Ink), Pigment Ink - Black (Colorbox)
Embellishments: Nestabilities - Standard Small Circles (Spellbinders), Rhinestones (Best Occasions)

A fun little surprise after you open the card.

I am ready to go home; been on the road so much, that I had to go into a bookstore yesterday night and check out the "Crafting" section to look through books to get my fix. How do you satisfy your crafting urges when you're on the road?
