Map

Hello Everyone,

Today is yet another day for a new challenge at The Male Room! These next coming weeks the challenge is all about die-cuts.. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Die-cuts are the main focus for this card.
Everything from the map, to the laid in state of Michigan,
to the prefabricated 'H' die-cut are die-cuts.
_____________________________

Theme- Stash
_____________________________


The background is watercolored using ArtMinds watercolor
using my absolute favorite colors; orange, blue, and brown.

I wanted the colors of the sentiment to match the colors you would
find on an old' fashioned paper map.
(remember that thing in your glove box with all the colors, lines, and legends. And is the same thing you could NEVER fold back to how it was before you opened it.) 😠
Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS #222
Cards in Envy: Favorite color (ATG) card challenge



This card is actually not for a male at all... It is actually for a friend I haven't met yet!! We are going to meet Thursday and I thought I would give her a nice card; because you know, it wouldn't be a proper meeting without a card, right? She is actually a blog friend I met and happens to live a couple of miles away... WHAT!!?? So cool and I'm sure we will have a fun meeting. 

Well, that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay but more importantly, I hope you join our challenge at The Male Room. Until then take care and happy stamping! Take care all and looking forward to seeing you at The Male Room!! Happy crafting!!

All the best,
Shawna
