Another for Connie and Mary


A great sketch this week from the Create With Connie and Mary challenge #164 and I am sure there will be lots of lovely entries to be inspired from!

I think this card is fairly self explanatory - I did stamp the Crumb Cake layer with the background stamp from The Open Sea set before I embossed it but the embossing faded it off. I am lucky I enjoy cutting out and the little Stampin' Up! paper snips are excellent to use. I even managed to make my globe quite round!! All my jumbo rivets have been used up so I just used circles of card and brads.

Stamps: The Open Sea, Teeny Weeny Sentiments
Card: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Nautical Expedition DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy
Other: Tag punch, Bakers Twine, brads, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Spiral punch

Jean, this is GORGEOUS!!! Love everything about it. It's a wonderful masculine card - but would be nice for a female too! Just beautiful.
