Welcome once again, and thank you for visiting.
I did not think I would be blogging again for a while, but as I live by the motto "have computer, will travel" I thought I would write up this entry while away from home for several days.
I had this card photographed and ready to go, so here it is.
The sketch challenge this week at Crazy 4 challenges really inspired me. I had a card to make for a man, so found it a great starting point.
The cad base I used is a lightly grey speckled cream card that I got from the local printer. I used a metallic red fibrous 'stuff' for the left triangle - it has a real sheen to it IRL, but the camera does not pick it up particularly well.
Here is a close up shot of it, showing some of the sheen
The top triangle is cut from an old dictionary page - the dictionary was found at a garage sale by a wonderful friend!!
The centre circle is white card on which I stamped a world map on using tea stain distressing ink and cut using a Spellbinders lacy circle, and then sponged with Adirondack Espresso ink.
The verse was stamped and embossed in copper.
The sentiment was also stamped and embossed in copper, and distressed with the espresso ink.
The ribbon is a dark brown and the brads just gave it the finishing touch.

Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed.
