Belated HB, Leah

Our granddaughter was touring Europe on her birthday, so this card will be late.  I thought this castle from the SU set Provencale would be appropriate, though I am not sure whether or not she did see any castles.  I think this is appropriate for "new" challenges as she has been between seasons with her job - working on the activity staff for American riverboat cruises.  She has not yet heard her new assignment..  I used the ink pad to distress the embossing - folder by Lifestyle Crafts.  I am hoping it looks a bit like stone building blocks.  The edges of the image are also distressed.  The Granddaughter sticker is new, and the post mark sticker is from a set I found buried in one of my boxes!
