For today's TLC: use a map. Bridget gave me this gorgeous dp, and I knew I had to use it for this challenge! I didn't add much to the card so the dp would show more. I stamed the ship and compass in black, cut out the compass and stamped again on the dp. For the ship, I sponged the water in sage and the sky in pool, plus added spritzer and hardware; popped it up. Also sponged the edges of dp in sage. Thanks for stopping by today! ~Roberta

Oh, Roberta, this is very special - all the more so because on a map we are separated by a long distance but have become friends through our card making! Love the pretty colors, and your ship clipped in the corner is perfect!

Really pretty! Your ship seems like its floating right into the bottom water of that map because of how you sponged it. How fun to get this goodie from your pal across the ocean. It fit perfectly into today's challenge!

I'm back Roberta - trying to catch up on some well deserved comments from my fellow stampers. Yep, you did it, you were able to let the dp stand out instead of clutter it up like I do. I start out with beautiful paper and by the end you can barely see it. There's something to be said for "less is more" and in your case you have highlighted the dp perfectly and still managed to add some nice details. What a perfect image for this dp. Big sis - you is "gooood"!
