Masculine Happy Birthday

Today's card was created for the latest The Male Room Challenge
I started with a cream card base and layered some Stampin' UP early espresso cardstock on top. I then stamped the World Map background stamp by Stampin' UP onto some more cream cardstock using Gina K Designs charcoal brown ink. I cut the map up into 3 smaller panels and ink distressed them using Tim Holtz tea dye and faded jeans distress inks. I stamped the compass from Unity Stamp Company's Go In The Direction Of Your Heart stamp set twice onto cream cardstock using the same brown ink. I die cut one of the images using a circle die from Spellbinders and inked around the edges just like I did the map panels. I fussy cut the other image out and popped it up onto the larger panel. I mounted the entire thing onto a circle I die cut using a My Favorite Things pierced edge die and early espresso cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Talk sentiment stamp set onto more cream cardstock and distressed it and mounted it with early espresso cardstock. To finish my card I added some black Nuvo crystal drops to the center of the compass and on either side of the sentiment. I hope you like it. Thank you for visiting my blog!

This has such a fabulous vintage feel. I think the old world map panel is fab and the compass on top is just perfect. Sorry to be so late commenting. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room Maps/Coordinates Challenge. Deborah, DT.
