Today's sketch challenge was exactly what I needed to help me with a masculine birthday card I needed to make! Masculine cards are so hard for me to create! I know I am not alone! Hahaha! I've been looking for designer paper with an old map, when I didn't need it, it was everywhere! Today I found this sheet in a scrap-booking kit from the Paper Studio called Destinations. It's not exactly what I had in mind but it will do. I sponged it heavily around the edges which helped a lot! The image panel and two little rectangles behind it are the other side of the map. The light house image is from a set called Light of the World from Our Daily Bread designs. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to break up the birthday sentiment. I added a button and linen thread to finish the card!
