Sweet Stash - Love across the miles

(Edited to add: I'm linking this up with the Moxie Fab World Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge!)

Hello again! One more for me today! I managed to make it a ways down my list of challenges today, and one of them ends tonight - so I am posting this now! Here is the card:
And here are the challenges! First up, the new challenge over at Sweet Stamp Shop - Use Your Stash:

And finally, I used this photo inspiration from the Inspired By challenge:

Before I get to the card, here is my stash that I pulled from! I have a lot (and I mean a LOT!) of 6x6 paper pads. I'm kind of addicted...and easily distracted by the newest and latest and greatest. I guess that's better than how I used to be - I would hoard the new stuff for the "perfect" project, and by the time I got around to using it, it wasn't new anymore! Now I use it as soon as it enters the door! But then the old can easily get a bit neglected:
I pulled out an older MME paper pad, trimmed and stamped the map and sentiment (using PTI ink) on my pattern paper.
Trimmed it down, attached it at an angle on my background pattern paper, then attached it with some Glitz Designs chevron washi tape (I got that idea from the pillow in the inspiration photo) 
Added some enamel dots and some veneer hearts (again, the ladder in the picture inspired that).
That's it! Super simple and easy! I kind of like the fun textures on this one!
