Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A very early post this morning as I am off to a workshop in Burnley held by the lovely Eileen Goodwin.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

A vintage male card to share today using an old stamp designed by me quite a few years ago.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 green scalloped square card.
2. Matted and layered Kraft card which I have distressed the edges with DI ground espresso and the map from IndigoBlu mixed media paper pack.
3 Before adhering the layers to the base card I wrapped the ribbon around the bottom and added the compass brad to the top.
4. I stamped the image with Versafine vintage sepia and embossed with WOW clear embossing powder along with the word. I then cut out using SB Grande Circle die. I then distressed around the image with vintage photo.  Coloured images with my Derwent pencils.
5. I adhered the topper with foam pads for dimension.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I lost my only brother several years ago but he would have loved this card! He was a motorcycle enthusiast his entire life and gathered up road maps like he was going to travel every road shown on each map. :-D
